    Yankees' Ibanez hits a solo home run in front of Orioles' Wieters during Game 3 of their MLB ALDS baseball playoff series in New York

    Raul Ibanez is your latest Yankees playoff hero. The 40-year-old hit a pinch-hit game-tying solo shot in the bottom of the ninth inning, then launched another solo homer in the bottom of the 12th as New York rallied back to defeat Baltimore by a score of 3-2 in Game 3 of the ALDS on Wednesday…

  2. No homers, no problem for Chris Davis

    Oct 9, 2012, 12:59 AM EST

    Chris Davis

    When he’s not winning games as a reliever, Chris Davis is pretty much known as a home run guy. He hit three of them in a win over Toronto on Aug. 24, and he homered in six games in a row coming down the stretch, helping the Orioles lock up a wild card bid in…

And tonight the Orioles faithful saw something unusual: their All-Star closer get beat around and turn a 2-2 tie game in the ninth into a…

  7. CC Sabathia shakes off postseason slump with big outing

    Oct 8, 2012, 12:18 AM EST

    CC Sabathia

    CC Sabathia managed to avoid taking any losses during the Yankees’ all too brief postseason runs in 2010 and 2011, but he couldn’t sidestep the criticism  The game’s highest-paid pitcher, he was far from an ace in amassing a 5.84 ERA in 24 2/3 innings the last two Octobers. Sabathia’s 2012 postseason got off to a…

  11. The Orioles’ improbable season marches on

    Oct 6, 2012, 12:01 AM EST

    Orioles Getty

    For most of the regular season, the surprising success of the Orioles was downplayed because of a negative run-differential and their penchant for winning one-run and extra-inning games. Going into tonight’s Wild Card game against the Rangers, most prognosticators didn’t give the Orioles much of a chance because they were using left-hander Joe Saunders against…

    Whatever odds Nick Markakis had of playing for the Orioles again this season took a hit today, as the team announced that he won’t have the pin removed from his fractured thumb as hoped. Instead that will have to wait another week, which likely means Markakis is at least three weeks from potentially seeing game…

    Sep 14, 2012, 10:55 PM EST

    CC Sabathia

    CC Sabathia is the game’s highest-paid hurler, but David Price has pretty obviously supplanted him as the AL East’s best pitcher. Tampa Bay’s ace picked up his league-leading 18th win Friday as the Rays topped the Yankees 6-4. Price allowed two runs in seven innings to become the AL’s first to 18 victories. Sabathia gave…
