New York Yankees defeat Tampa Bay Rays, 4-1

When Derek Jeter came out to run his pregame sprints Monday before the first game of a day-night doubleheader against the Rays, fans erupted into cheers.

Each time he came to the plate in the nightcap, cameras flashed and chants began.

Good feelings surged through the Stadium and each of Jeter's at-bats was an event. But the Yankee shortstop is not the Yankee Hit King yet. Jeter went 0-for-4 in each game, failing to move any closer to Lou Gehrig's Yankee hit record.


Derek JeterĀ is apparently in no hurry to make history.

Just four good swings away from becoming the Yankees hits king, the 10-time All-Star prolonged the wait for fans pulling for him to break Lou Gehrig's 72-year-old record.

In the first game of yesterday's doubleheader with the Tampa Rays, Jeter was 0-4 at the plate leaving some Bombers fans wondering if the usually cool-headed shortstop is feeling the pressure.

Jeter flew out, struck out and grounded out twice....
