Ibanez pinch-hit for DH Alex Rodriguez in the ninth inning and hit a solo home run to tie the game at two and send it to extra innings. Despite being pinch-hit for, A-Rod was leading the way cheering his teammate.
Then in the 12th, Ibanez led off the bottom of the inning with a second-deck walk-off home run to win the game 3-2.
