New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter hit a pair of singles in Thursday's 9-3 loss to the Cleveland Indians, thus becoming the fourth player whose career began after 1914 with 1,000 multihit games, per Bill Chuck of gammonsdaily.com.

It was an otherwise ordinary night for the Yankee shortstop, who struck out in his other two at-bats and also drew a walk.

He then went hitless in five at-bats Friday against the Orioles before recording multihit game No. 1,001 on Saturday.

Now in his 20th and final major league season, Jeter ranks eighth on MLB's all-time list with 3,407 career hits. He'll likely pass seventh-place Carl Yastrzemski (3,419) and sixth-place Honus Wagner (3,430) in the coming weeks but would need to play another season to catch Tris Speaker (3,515) in fifth.

As for the other players since 1914 with 1,000 multihit games, all-time hit king Pete Rose recorded an incredible 1,225, with the group rounded out by Hall Of Famers Stan Musial (1,059) and Hank Aaron (1,046). 

Rose finished his career with 4,256 hits, Aaron ranks third on the all-time list with 3,771, and Musial sits in fourth with 3,630.

Second-place Ty Cobb (4,191) almost certainly recorded 1,000 multihit games, but he played a good portion of his career before 1914.
