Raul Ortiz

Yes, the Yankees lost Game One of the ALCS after coming back from a 4-0 deficit and, yes, they may have lost the irreplaceable Derek Jeter for who knows how long, but attention must be paid to Raul Ibanez, who improbably did this in the improbable bottom of the ninth last night:


With that swing, Ibanez did what no major league ballplayer has ever done: hit three home runs in the 9th inning or later during the postseason.

And there are still at least three games to go.

So does Ibanez now rank up there with David Ortiz, who might (or might not) be baseball’s greatest clutch hitter of all time?

Stay tuned.
