ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter has snapped his 0-for-28 slump.
Jeter lined a single to center field off Tampa Bay right-hander Alex Cobb in the sixth inning Wednesday night.
The slide was the second-longest of Jeter's career. He went 0 for 32 in April 2004.
The hit was the 3,451st of Jeter's career. He ranks sixth on the all-time list.
Jeter was playing in his final game at Tropicana Field. The shortstop announced his retirement after this season in February.
