Ibanez Homers Twice, Yanks Stun Orioles in 12th

The highest paid player in baseball looked on as Raul Ibanez pinch hit for him and tied the game with a bottom-of-the-ninth home run.

Alex Rodriguez cheered from the dugout again-three innings later when Ibanez homered a second time to win it.

Saved by manager Joe Girardi's move-and Ibanez's swings-the New York Yankees rallied for a stunning 3-2 win in the 12th over the Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday night for a 2-1 lead in their best-of-five AL division series.

The slumping Rodriguez, among the greatest power hitters in history, offered no complaint, telling Girardi: "Joe, you gotta do exactly what you gotta do."
