Andrus made a barehanded play and an off-balance throw that forced first baseman J.P. Arencibia to stretch toward the outfield to make the catch. First-base umpire Ed Hickox called Jeter out on a close play, but the Yankees challenged at the behest of first-base coach Mick Kelleher.
The call was overturned and Jeter was given an infield hit. It was his second of the night, giving him 3,422 for his career. That is seventh all-time, leaving him eight behind Honus Wagner with 3,430.
The Yankees ended up scoring seven runs in the inning to take an 8-4 lead.
After Jeter was ruled safe, Jacoby Ellsbury fouled out and Mark Teixeira walked to load the bases. Carlos Beltran doubled home two runs and Brian McCann tied the game with a sacrifice fly. Martinez left the game after walking Chase Headley. Zoilo Almonte, facing Tolleson, drove in a run with a single, and Brendan Ryan drove home two more with a double. The final run scored when Rangers right fielder Alex Rios, in a near collision with center fielder Leonys Martin, misplayed Gardner's fly ball for a run-scoring error, with Gardner reaching third.
