New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter drove in three runs, including the game-winner in the ninth inning Thursday, in his last game at Yankee Stadium.

Jeter, who is retiring at the end of the season, gave the Yankees a 6-5 victory against the Baltimore Orioles in dramatic fashion with a run-scoring single to right field to cap a 2-for-5 night and his career in the Bronx.

“It was above and beyond anything that I’ve ever dreamt of,” Jeter said. “This was a lot of fun.” Jeter said after the game that he has played his final game at shortstop.

He will be the designated hitter for the Yankees’ season-ending series at the Boston Red Sox this weekend.

“I want to take something special from Yankee Stadium and the view from shortstop here tonight is what I want to take home,” he said. “I’ve only played shortstop throughout my entire career and the last time I want to play was tonight.”
