BALTIMORE (AP) — New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter was scratched from the starting lineup for Sunday night’s game against the Orioles after bruising his right knee in the opener of the split doubleheader.

Jeter played in his 2,402nd game with New York on Sunday afternoon, breaking a tie with Mickey Mantle for most in a Yankees uniform. He fouled a ball off his knee in the third inning of New York’s 2-0 loss and remained in the game, but acknowledged afterward that he felt pain in the knee.

Between games, Jeter insisted he would play in the nightcap. He was in the original starting lineup, but was removed shortly before the first pitch and replaced at shortstop by Eduardo Nunez.

Jeter went 0 for 4 in the first game but did not appear to be hindered by the injury.
