YES (Yankees Entertainment and Sports) Network executives were congratulating Derek Jeter — and themselves — for setting record-high ratings Saturday when he recorded his 3,000th hit in a game against the Tampa Bay Rays that saw him collect five hits. Jeter himself compared the game to the script of a TV drama. “If I would have tried to have written it and given it to someone, I wouldn’t even buy it, to be quite honest with you,” he said. “It was just one of those special days.” The regional telecast drew an average of 634,000 viewers, peaking in the 2:00 p.m. half hour when Jeter got hit No. 3,000 (a home run) with 827,000 viewers.
