Raul Ibanez saw three pitches Wednesday night. He hit two home runs.

Quite the impressive ALDS Game 3 for Ibanez, the guy Yankees fans didn't want at the beginning of the season. (They wanted Johnny Damon or Hideki Matsui.)

With Ibanez's homer in the 12th to win it, he became the oldest player in MLB history to his a walkoff homer in the postseason. He's also the only MLB player to hit two homers in the same game that he didn't start.

And if you want more postseason record set by Ibanez in his 20 or seconds at home plate on Wednesday, he's the only MLB player to ever hit a game-tying homer in the ninth inning and a game-winning home run in extra innings.

Hear from Ibanez in his post-game interview on the field.
