When Raul Ibanez was brought in to pinch-hit for Alex Rodriguez in the ninth inning, it seemed humorous—until Ibanez hit the first 9th-inning, game-tying, pinch-hit home run in Yankees postseason history. But when he hit another home run, this time to win the ballgame in the bottom of the 12th, it was just insane. The Yankees now hold a 2-1 lead in the American League Division Series, and the Orioles suffer their first loss this season in 75 games when leading after seven. Baseball!
Hey, even the Sheik was impressed.
