Ibanez the hero as Yanks take series leadOct 11, 2012 - 3:15 PM
Ibanez, pinch-hitting for a struggling Alex Rodriguez in the ninth, tied the game with a solo homer off Jim Johnson and three innings later sent a Brian Matusz offering into the second deck in right field to give the New York Yankees a wild 3-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles.
The dramatic turnaround gave the Yankees a 2-1 lead in the American League Division Series after the clubs split a pair in Baltimore.
The Orioles had won an unfathomable 16 straight extra-inning games and had not suffered a walk-off loss all season.
Now, they are on the brink of elimination.
