25. RAUUUUUUUL -- Oct. 10, 2012
With the ALDS against the Orioles tied at 1-1 and the Orioles leading Game 3 by a run with one out in the ninth, Raul Ibanez was sent in to pinch-hit for the struggling Alex Rodriguez. It was an unprecedented move given Rodriguez's stature as one of the greatest sluggers in baseball history. But Ibanez made manager Joe Girardi look brilliant, hitting a home run to right field to tie the score. In the bottom of the 12th, Ibanez struck again, turning on the first pitch of his next at-bat to win the game. |(Credit: Newsday / Thomas A. Ferrara)
