NEW YORK — Derek Jeter tied Lou Gehrig atop the Yankees' hit list and New York rallied for a 4-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Wednesday night thanks to a three-run homer by pinch-hitter Jorge Posada in the eighth inning.

Jeter got three hits to match Gehrig with 2,721 in a Yankees uniform, a mark the Hall of Famer had held by himself for more than 70 years. Jeter had a chance to break the record, but he walked against reliever Grant Balfour after New York's comeback in the eighth.
