Yankees 4, Red Sox 3, 12 innings

NEW YORK — Raul Ibanez tied it with a pinch-hit homer in the ninth inning then had an RBI single in the 12th, helping the Yankees remain a game up on Baltimore in the AL East with one game left by beating the Red Sox 4-3 on Tuesday night.

With a second comeback spurred by Ibanez in the past 10 days, the Yankees need a win or Orioles loss today to secure their 13th division title since 1996. If the teams are even after tonight, they'll play a tiebreaker Thursday in Baltimore.

The Yankees were 0-58 when trailing after eight innings this season before rallying in the ninth. Curtis Granderson led off with a single off closer Andrew Bailey and Ibanez lined a shot to rightfield to tie it at 3.

Ibanez came up again with two outs in the 12th after Francisco Cervelli and Granderson walked. He hit a grounder out of the reach of shortstop Jose Iglesias.
