Ibanez leads Bronx Bombers to 2-1 playoff lead

It was a heroic night back home for the Bronx Bombers who have taken a 2-1 lead in the American League Division.

Raul Ibanez made history becoming the first player in the major league to hit two home runs in the postseason. The first hit came in the 9th inning and then again in the 12th, giving the Yankees a 3-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles.

The win puts New York just one game away from the American League Championship Series.
