He did it again!

Forty-year-old Raul Ibanez blasted another game-tying home run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning -- this one a two-run shot in the right-field seats off Tigers closer Jose Valverde in Game 1 of the ALCS on Saturday night, making him the first player ever with three home runs in the ninth inning or later in a single postseason, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

Ibanez accomplished the same feat in Game 3 in the ALDS, granted that one was a solo bomb. Oh, and he was pinch-hitting for Alex Rodriguez. He then won that game with a walk-off homer.

Ichiro Suzuki had brought the Yankees within 4-2 earlier in the frame with a two-run homer of his own.

What will Ibanez do next? Stay tuned.
