Derek Jeter recorded his first base hit in a rehab game for the Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders on Sunday. The Yankees' captain reached base three times and scored a run, while getting a day off from the field.

Jeter batted from the leadoff spot for the RailRiders, and was the designated hitter after playing in Saturday night's contest at shortstop. Much like his first rehab game, Jeter worked a walk to start the bottom of the first, giving him an opportunity to run the bases early. After the game, Jeter expressed no worry over his ankle while on the basepaths.

"I'm not concerned with that," Jeter told reporters at his postgame news conference. "I've done a lot of that down in Florida. It's good to get back into a game, but I don't have a checklist."

His base hit came in the third inning with a man aboard at first base. Jeter saw an elevated 86-mph fastball, and sent it through the left side, just past the glove of shortstop Freddy Galvis. His lack of concern over baserunning was matched by his modest reaction to the single.

"It's good [to get a hit], better to get a hit than get an out," said Jeter who downplayed his first rehab hit. "As long as I'm seeing the ball good, I'm fine. The results at this particular point I don't think is the No. 1 priority."

Jeter would score on a home run by Randy Ruiz later in the inning, and later joked how he scored easily from first on the play.
