Elsa/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Derek Jeter passed the only shortstop remaining on the all-time hits list on Saturday in the bottom of the sixth inning with a base hit off Indians pitcher Corey Kluber.
Jeter is set to retire at the end of the season and Honus Wagner was the last person he could probably reach when the season started.
“Honus Wanger, he is the last one on the list who has played shortstop,” Jeter said. “That one hits home a little bit. Anytime you pass guys that have had the careers that they’ve had, it is kind of overwhelming.”
The 40-year-old shortstop collected his 3,431 hit off of Kluber, but the Indians shut out the Yankees, 3-0.
Tris Speaker, who sits at No. 5 on the all-time hits list, has 3,514 hits.

Robert Rogers/MLB Photos via Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The milestones continue to pile up for Derek Jeter. On Friday night, the New York Yaknees shortstop went 1-for-4 and in the process moved into a tie for sixth on the all-time hit list.
Jeter tied Honus Wagner for sixth place on the career list with his 3,430th hit in the first inning.
This will be the final season for the 40-year-old Jeter, his 20th with the Yankees. Among his many career accomplishments, Jeter keeps climbing up the hits list.
Jeter may have a hard time moving up to the fifth spot, as he trails Tris Speaker by 84 hits.
“Big names. I mean really big names,” manager Joe Girardi said. “It’s been fun to watch him go through it this season.”
Even more important for the Yankees was Jeter’s hit helped lead the team to a 10-6 win over the New York Yankees. Despite dealing with a slew of injuries, the Yankees still find themselves in the Wild Card hunt in the American League.
They trail the Kansas City Royals by just .5 games for the final Wild Card spot heading into Saturday.

Elsa/Getty Images(MINNEAPOLIS) — Derek Jeter went 2-for-2 in his final All-Star game, and Miguel Cabrera hit a two-run home run to help the American League down the National League 5-3 Tuesday.
Jeter was the highlight of the game. The 14-time All-Star doubled to leadoff the bottom half of the first inning and proceeded to score on Mike Trout’s triple. Jeter then led off the bottom of the third with a single.
Jeter took the field in the top of the fourth but Alexei Ramirez ran out onto the field to replace him. That sparked almost everyone at Target Field to give No. 2 a standing ovation while the song “New York, New York” played in the background. Jeter then went into the AL dugout where he received hugs from his teammates before coming back on the field for a curtain call.
After the celebration ended the NL tied the game 3-3 when Jonathan Lucroy doubled in pinch-runner Dee Gordon. But Mike Trout, who was named the game’s MVP, gave the AL the lead for good in the fifth when he laced an RBI double down the left field line.
The game ended with some excitement for the home crowd as Twins pitcher Glen Perkins pitched a perfect ninth to earn the save for the AL.
