Holy Sh*t, Raul Ibanez Hits Game-Winning Home Run In 12th Inning To Defeat Orioles (Video)

Wow. Joe Girardi must feel like a genius right now. After tying Game 3 of the ALDS between the Yankees and Orioles in the 9th inning with a solo HR, Raul Ibanez has done it again in the 12th inning with an absolute bomb of a home run to win the game. The Yankees now lead the series 2-1 with the final two games (Game 5 if necessary) in New York.
Ibanez in his postgame interview spat out some run-of-the-mill "it was a team win" fodder, but we know who the hero is in this one. And just maybe, he'll surpass Jim Leyritz as the most important random bald Yankee to hit a home run in the playoffs.
