If Derek Jeter goes 4-for-4 in Baltimore tonight ... it might have something to do with the awesome home cooking he ordered up from a local restaurant -- owned by Bronx native Chazz Palminteri.
New York Yankees sources tell us Jetes and fellow Bronx Bomber, Andruw Jones, were jonesin' for classic NY style pizza this afternoon ... and found it at Chazz: A Bronx Original.
We're told Jeter and Jones walked into the Baltimore hot spot ... and placed a Ruthian sized order: coal-fired burrata pizza, chicken parm, veal meatballs and shrimp over polenta!
Before the Yanks took their order to go they posed with a staffer ... and Palminteri -- writer and star of "A Bronx Tale" -- called to wish 'em good luck in tonight's game against the Orioles.
Jeter got 4 hits last night against the O's. So ... 5-for-5, anyone?
4:10PM PT Jeter just crushed a lead-off homer deep to centerfield to start the game.
