Ibanez nailed an 0-1 pitch into the right-field seats to tie the game.
Ibanez is the first player ever with three home runs in the ninth inning or later in a single postseason, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
LOADED: Before Ibanez put on his usual late-inning magic show, the Yankees were their normal tragic selves with runners in scoring position.
In the sixth, the Yankees loaded the bases for the third time in the game. And for the third time, they left them loaded. The third time!
ANDREW EUGENE: Pettitte's still got it. He pitched well enough to collect his 20th career playoff win. Pettitte went 6 2/3 innings, allowing just two runs on seven hits. He struck out five and walked three (one intentional). Pettitte could come back in Game 5 on regular rest.
EMPTY SEATS: Yankee Stadium was far from a sellout, and the seats were half-full during player introductions. The announced attendance was 47,122.
WHAT'S NEXT: A 4 p.m. ET Game 2 at the Stadium, pitting Kuroda against Anibal Sanchez.
