Jeter gets closer
Photos
Blue Jays 14, Yankees 8
Sergio Mitre allowed 11 runs (nine earned) on 11 hits over 4 1/3 innings on Sunday. (AP)
Derek Jeter went 3-for-3 to pull within three hits of Lou Gehrig's franchise record, and Melky Cabrera and Nick Swisher both homered -- Cabrera's three-run shot was his 500th career hit -- but the Bombers' series finale with the Blue Jays was otherwise largely a series of missteps.
