NEW YORK -- Derek Jeter moved ahead of Lou Gehrig and into first place on the New York Yankees all-time doubles list with a two-bagger into the left-field corner in the ninth inning of tonight's Yankees-Texas Rangers game.

It was the 535th double of Jeter's career, and it came off Rangers reliever Neal Cotts but ultimately led nowhere. After Cotts intentionally walked Jacoby Ellsbury, Carlos Beltran hit into an inning-ending double play and sent the game into extra innings as a scoreless tie.
