Derek Jeter left tonight's ALDS game between the Yankees and the Baltimore Orioles in the ninth inning after apparently aggravating a lingering injury in his left leg.

Jeter struck out to make the last out of the eighth inning, and stumbled away from home plate after swinging and missing on the third strike.

He was replaced at shortstop by Jayson Nix for the top of the ninth with the Yankees trailing, 2-1, in Game 3. Full story coming soon.
