At least one Yankee can hit

So, after Raul Ibanez hit the game-tying home run in the ninth inning, the next eight Yankees made out - all too inevitable with this team in the clutch. So, as Ibanez steps into the batters box to lead off the twelfth, I tell my wife, "If Ibanez doesn't hit a home run here, the Yankees are dead." The words were barely out of my mouth when he hit a blast into the upper deck to win the game for the Yankees!
Unfortunately, Phil Hughes, who gives up a lot of home runs, is pitching tonight in Yankee Stadium, which is a home run ballpark, against an Oriole lineup that hits a ton of home runs. I would say the over/under on home runs by Baltimore tonight is seven. Mark Reynolds could hit three.
