New York City New York. New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter single up the middle in the bottom of the seventh inning tied him for 13th place with one of his childhood idols Cal Ripken Jr., in the Yankees 4-3 loss to the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night in New York City.

Ripken and Jeter now have 3,184 base hits each. Nap Lajoie is the player that Jeter will try to beat. Lajoie had 3,252 base hits in Major League Baseball career. Jeter could break Lajoie's record this season if he stays healthy.

Jeter 38, has a long chance of chasing the 4,000 base hit plateau since his contract with the Yankees runs through 2013 worth $17 million dollars. Jeter has a player option worth $8 million in 2014.

Jeter downplayed the possibility of chasing Pete Rose's all time hits record of 4,256 saying he is focused on today.
