 DETROIT (AP) -Derek Jeter wasn't going to sit out twice in the middle of a pennant race.
The New York Yankees shortstop missed Sunday's loss to the Detroit Tigers with a sore knee, but was back in his customary spot in the lineup on Monday.
``I asked him if he needed another day, and he said there was no chance,'' New York manager Joe Torre said before the series finale. ``I think getting 48 hours between games is all he needed.''
Jeter, who bruised his knee last week in Anaheim, had one hit in 13 at-bats entering Monday night's game, but didn't want to use the injury as an excuse.
``I'm fine,'' he said. ``I'm good to go. We just need to start winning some games.''
The Yankees return home Tuesday for a three-game series with AL East-leading Boston. New York entered Monday 7 1/2 games behind the Red Sox and two games behind Seattle in the wild-card race.
``Obviously, this is big,'' Jeter said. ``We can't let ourselves believe that we can't catch Boston and we need to focus on the wild card. We are still thinking about the division, and Boston's the team in front of us.''
