Video: Raul Ibanez Walk Off Homer Leads Yankees Past Orioles

| by Alex Groberman

Heading into Wednesday’s ALDS Game 3 showdown between the New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles, all eyes were on Alex Rodriguez. Coming out of that very same game, all eyes were on the pinch-hitter called in to replace him: Raul Ibanez.

Ibanez, 40, hit a game-tying home run in the ninth inning, and then finished the Orioles off for good in the 12th when he hit what was undoubtedly the clutchest bomb we’ve seen thus far in the postseason.

Check it out:

And with that, New York took a 2-1 series lead over Baltimore. Game 4 goes down today at 4:37 p.m.
