Jeter relay nails Avila


Once again, Derek Jeter comes through in October.

With runners on first and second and one out in the fifth, Jhonny Peralta lined a one-hop single to Curtis Granderson in center. Granderson fired to Jeter, who collected the relay throw and fired to Russell Martin, who caught Jeter's throw slightly to the third base side of home plate and tagged out Alex Avila.

The score remains tied at 1-1 in the fifth.
