Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter homered Sunday on the first pitch of his first at-bat since returning from a Grade 1 quadriceps muscle strain. It was only his fifth at-bat of the 2013 regular season.

The home run was the Yankees’ first since the All-Star break and just the third home run hit by a Yankees shortstop this year. It was also the Yankees’ first home run from a right-handed hitter since June 25.
