How many hits does Derek Jeter need to break Lou Gehrig's hit record at Yankee Stadium?

During the broadcast during the NYY/LAA game on 8/9/08, it was discussed that Derek Jeter only needed 27 hits over his final 19 games at The Stadium to break Gehrig's record. Since then, Jeter had 3 hits on 8/15, 2 hits on 8/16, and went 4-for4 today (8/17). Again, if the info I heard is correct, Jeter should only need 18 more hits over the remaining 16 home games to become the all-time hits record holder in Yankee Stadium. Derek Jeter broke Lou Gehrig's hit record at the stadium on September 16, 2008. He now owns the record, that stands at 1,274 hits.
