The hitters had a pre-game meeting Friday afternoon, but that was the typical pre-game gathering to discuss the night's matchup.

Jeter passes Cal

New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter passed Cal Ripken Jr. for sole possession of 13th on the all-time hits list with 3,185 with a first-inning double Friday night against the Chicago White Sox.

Ripken released a statement saying: "Congratulations to Derek on passing me on the all-time hits list. Derek has been such a special player for such a long time and I am happy to see him continue to play at a high level. He represents the game and the Yankees wonderfully and I hope that he continues to play and continues to give all of us baseball fans great memories."

Chavez to be re-examined

Endy Chavez, who has been on the disabled list since June 14 with a strained right hamstring and was eligible to come off the DL on Thursday, is not improving and will be re-examined outside of the organization. He has been in Sarasota, Fla., working with the minor league medical staff. He has undergone hydrotherapy and played catch, but has not been able to run outside.

"I think he may see somebody about his hamstring to see if something's going on there," Showalter said. "It's surprising that he hasn't had more progress."
