Did you know? ALDS Game 3: Yanks 3, O's 2
A look at some notable facts and figures from the New York Yankees' 3-2 victory in 12 innings over the Baltimore Orioles in Game 3 of the American League Division Series at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday night.

• Raul Ibanez, who hit a pinch-hit home run in the ninth inning to send the game into extra innings before hitting a walk-off home run in the 12th, became the first player in postseason history to hit two homers in a game he didn't start.

• Ibanez is the first player in postseason history to hit a home run in the ninth inning and extra innings of the same game.

• Ibanez, 40, became the oldest player to hit a walk-off homer in a postseason game, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Wild Card vs. Yankees

• Ibanez, who pinch-hit for Alex Rodriguez, became the first Yankees player to hit a game-tying home run in the ninth inning or later of a postseason game since Rodriguez in 2009.

• On Oct. 10, 1964 -- 48 years to the day -- Mickey Mantle hit a walk-off homer against the Cardinals in the ninth inning in Game 3 of the World Series to give the Yankees a 2-1 win.

• David Robertson, who recorded the win, also got the victory in the last extra-innings playoff game at Yankee Stadium, a 4-3 win over the Angels in Game 2 of the 2009 American League Championship Series on Oct. 17.

• The Orioles had a 16-game extra-innings winning streak snapped and fell to 16-3 in extra innings on the year. All three losses have been to the Yankees.

• The game tied Baltimore's longest playoff game in club history. The last time the O's had a postseason contest go 12 innings was in Game 3 of the 1997 AL Championship Series -- a 2-1 loss to the Indians.

• Baltimore lost for the first time this season when leading after seven innings. Including the playoffs, the Orioles were 76-0 entering Game 3.

• Manny Machado, 20, became the youngest Orioles player to hit a postseason home run when he took Yankees starter Hiroki Kuroda deep in the fifth. Machado also became the second-youngest player to hit a home run in the playoffs -- Andruw Jones, who homered against the Yankees in the 1996 World Series as a 19-year-old with the Braves, is the youngest.

• Machado joined Jones, Mantle and Miguel Cabrera as the only players to hit a postseason home run before turning 21.

• Rookie Ryan Flaherty hit the Orioles' first home run of the playoffs with a second-inning solo homer off Kuroda. It was Baltimore's first postseason home run since Eric Davis went deep in Game 5 of the 1997 ALCS.

• Flaherty and Machado are the only two Orioles rookies to a hit a postseason home run in club history. They also became the first pair of rookie teammates to hit home runs in the same postseason game.

• Machado and Jim Thome are the youngest and oldest Orioles players to record a postseason at-bat. Before Machado, Jim Palmer was the youngest.

• Derek Jeter extended his postseason hitting streak to six games with a third-inning triple off Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez and has hit safely in 14 of his last 15 ALDS games dating back to 2007.

• Jeter's triple moved him into a three-way tie with George Brett and Rafael Furcal for the most in postseason history.

• Jeter recorded the 56th multi-hit game of his postseason career, giving him 3,501 career hits, including the playoffs.

• Jeter moved within three hits of 200 for his playoff career. The next closest is former teammate Bernie Williams, who has 128.

• Gonzalez became the first rookie to allow one run or fewer in seven-plus innings pitched against the Yankees in a postseason game since Joe Black of the Brooklyn Dodgers in Game 4 of the 1952 World Series.

• Gonzalez has a 2.21 ERA, 25:1 strikeout-to-walk-ratio and is holding Yankees hitters to a .197 batting average over three career starts against them, all coming at Yankee Stadium.

• Rodriguez went 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts and is 3-for-30 over his last two postseasons, striking out 13 times. He has gone 73 consecutive postseason at-bats without a homer, the longest drought of his playoff career.
