TAMPA, Fla. — Derek Jeter went 0 for 2 to extend his hitless spring training, and the New York Yankees lost to the Baltimore Orioles 3-2 on Tuesday night.

The Yankees captain, 0 for 9 in four games, hit into his third double play in the first and had a grounder to third during the third.

Jeter, who announced last month that he will be retiring after the 2014 season, broke his left ankle in the 2012 American League Championship Series and was limited to 17 games last year.

Jeter was the designated hitter Tuesday in his first back-to-back games this spring. He played shortstop in in a 4-2 win Monday over the Washington Nationals.

Jeter had already left the clubhouse before it was opened to reporters late in the game.
