Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter(notes) departed after seven innings with left ankle soreness and replacement Ramiro Pena(notes) hit an RBI single in the eighth to give New York a 5-3 cushion.
Jeter wasn’t available after the win but Girardi said the captain thought he may have been injured when Gary Sheffield(notes) slid into second during a double play in the Yankees’ 15-0 over the New York Mets on Sunday.
“He said he woke up a little sore yesterday and it was sore to run today,” Girardi said, “and we noticed for the first time when he was running tonight, that he had a little hitch. It seemed to get a little bit worse and worse.”
A spokesman for the team said Jeter wasn’t going to get any tests done and Girardi said he’s day to day.
