Maybe the missing home game won’t matter that much, after all.

Derek Jeter just singled to lead off the bottom of the first inning for career hit No. 2,999. On a 3-2 pitch, he hit a ground ball through the left side of the infield off Rays’ left-hander David Price.

Jeter now sits just one hit away from becoming the 28th player in baseball history to reach the 3000-hit plateau.

Stay tuned for updates throughout the afternoon.
