Jeter hit by pitch, leaves with bruised finger

- Associated Press - Sunday, July 31, 2011

NEW YORK (AP) - Derek Jeter has left a game against Baltimore after being hit by a pitch on the knuckles of his right hand.

Jeter was hit by the first pitch from Orioles starter Jake Arrieta in the third inning Sunday. The New York Yankees captain was examined by team staff and went to first base. But in the fourth, he was lifted for pinch-hitter Francisco Cervelli.

The Yankees say X-rays didn't show a break and Jeter has a bruised middle finger.
