      Has anyone every hit a 9th inning game tying HR and game winning HR in the same game???

      probably.

      Oh, you mean in the post-season. Let me check.

      Looking quickly, I think he’s the first to do it.

      …and the Reds still lost to the Pirates. Amazing.

      In this game in 1962 vs the Mets, Willie Mays hit a game tying HR in the 8th, and a game winning HR in the 10th. Not quite the same…

      In this game in 1970, Jim Hickman hit a game tying two run HR in the 7th with the Cubs down by 2, and a game-winning two run HR in the 9th with the Cubs down by 1:

      And in this game in 1991, Robbie Alomar hit a game tying solo HR in the botttom of the 9th, and another in the bottom of the 11th.

      But the Jays lost in the 12th:

      There are no such post-season games.

      Until now.:)

      Raul Ibanez. Dude may have saved the Yankee season. Singlehandedly. Amazing.

      From a historical perspective, it may rank right up there as one of the greatest single game postseason performances in Yankee history – up there with Babe, Reggie, & Don Larsen.
