Yankees 3 - 2 Orioles ALDS Game 3 - Loss
Who is Raul Ibanez? Right now he is my least favorite player. We had our closer in to finish off the game, just as he has done so many times before, and here comes this no-name pinch hitter. I thought this would be great. The Yankees are shaken and now we can finish them off. They took out A-Rod and put in this guy? Please - this is it, we're on to Game 4 and a chance to pay back the Yankees.
But it wasn't to be. In fact, not only did Ibanez tie up the game in the 9th inning, he waited for his turn in the batting order to finish the game in the 12th inning! Seems pretty sad that the rest of the Yankees needed this guy to help them out but I guess you do whatever it takes to get the win.
Let's hope the O's can rally for another tough game in New York and win game 4.
