Derek Jeter became the 28th player to surpass 3,000 hits. The New York Yankee slugger made history when he launched a home run for hit No. 3,000, which is something only one other person had done before him. 

It now appears Jeter is coming out of his slump. Will he be able to stay consistent for the second half of the season? The Yankees are one game behind the Boston Red Sox heading into the All-Star break, and they're going to need their shortstop on his A-game.

David Beckham witnessed the birth of his fourth child, a girl he and wife Victoria named Harper Seven. The former England captain will join Landon Donovan and Thierry Henry to play for the MLS All-Star team as they battle Manchester United later this month. How will Beckham fare against his former team? 

Hope Solo made an amazing save to help team USA advance to the semifinals of the Women's World Cup. It was a very dramatic game that came down to penalty kicks, and Solo only stopped one Brazil player from scoring. However, it proved to be enough as she and her teammates wouldn't be denied victory.

Stay tuned as I update you on all of this plus more of today's top sports news.
