Raul Ibanez hits two home run to become postseason legend (Videos)

Raul Ibanez became a postseason legend on Wednesday night by homering twice for the Yankees in a Game 3 ALDS win over the Orioles at Yankee Stadium.

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.

Ibanez became the first player in MLB postseason history to homer twice in a ballgame he did not start. The 12th-inning walk-off home run off Brian Matusz was also his first home run off a lefty since July 26 2011, per CBS.

Forget Reggie Jackson; the Yankees may have a new Mr. October.
