Jeter's hit total down 1

NEW YORK — Turns out, the hit that tied Derek Jeter with Honus Wagner came a day later than everyone thought.

Major League Baseball made an official scoring change Tuesday that took away an infield single from Jeter on Aug. 8 and instead charged Indians 1B Carlos Santana with an error on the play.

Originally, that hit pulled Jeter even with Wagner for sixth place with 3,430 for his career. Now, it's an infield single the next day against Cleveland that moved Jeter up the chart. And it was his double Aug. 11 in Baltimore that pushed him ahead of Wagner.

Jeter says he has the souvenir ball from that double, thanks to Yankees head athletic trainer Steve Donohue.

"So there's no story," Jeter said before the Yankees played Houston. "If it was the last hit I'd ever gotten, it would be a story."

The star shortstop, who plans to retire after this season, began the night with 3,435 hits.

GIBSOn'S STATUS: Diamondbacks chief baseball officer Tony La Russa denied a USA Today report that the team had decided to retain manager Kirk Gibson for 2015.

SIMON CASE: A woman who accused Reds RHP Alfredo Simon of sexual assault should have to publicly identify herself, his lawyer said, though the woman has said she fears being harassed or hurt by Simon's fans. Simon was not charged in the incident that allegedly occurred in Washington in April 2013.

CARDINALS: 2B Mark Ellis went on the 15-day disabled list with a strained oblique.

INDIANS: RH reliever Scott Atchison signed a contract for next season with a team option in 2016. Financial terms were not immediately available. … OF Ryan Raburn, a former Durant standout, went on the 15-day disabled list with a sore right wrist.

NATIONALS: OF Nate McLouth will need season-ending surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder.

PADRES: RHP Andrew Cashner, out since June 23 with right shoulder soreness, pitched five innings Monday night in a rehab start for Triple-A El Paso and could return from the disabled list this weekend. … Rookie RHP Jesse Hahn, a former Rays prospect, was sent to Double-A San Antonio as part of a plan to limit his innings. He has totaled 1101/3 between the minors and majors.

RANGERS: RF Alex Rios was scratched because of a bruised right thumb.

REDS: LH closer Aroldis Chapman is considered day to day with a sore pitching shoulder.
