1st 5-hit game for Jeter since 2005
still hard to believe that only 2 out of 28 have hit #3000 as HR's

I guess statistically it makes some sense since most guy who reach 3,000 aren't big home run hitters, and even if you are one the odds are against any one hit being a homer.  For Jeter it was incredibly unlikely since he only had 2 homers all year.
