    Bronx, NY (Sports Network) - Raul Ibanez woke up a silent Yankee Stadium in the ninth inning, then made it erupt in the 12th.

    Ibanez, pinch-hitting for a struggling Alex Rodriguez in the ninth, tied the game with a solo homer off Jim Johnson and three innings later sent a Brian Matusz offering into the second deck in right field to give the New York Yankees a wild 3-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles.

    The dramatic turnaround gave the Yankees a 2-1 lead in the American League Division Series after the clubs split a pair in Baltimore.

    The Orioles had won an unfathomable 16 straight extra-inning games and had not suffered a walk-off loss all season.

    Now, they are on the brink of elimination.
