Raul Ibanez bashed his 12th home run of the season for the Yankees in the eighth inning of their tied contest with the Toronto Blue Jays. The bases were jacked, good for a grand slam to put the Yankees ahead 6-2 in the Bronx. They’d go on to earn the win.

The 40-year old still has something left.

His 12 home runs is good for double what the Phillies have gotten out of the left field position this season.
