Even if he wasn't a former Phillie, Raul Ibanez's performance Wednesday night — 48 years to the day that Mickey Mantle hit his only career postseason walk-off homer — put on one of the most stirring playoff performances in baseball playoff history.

He became the first player in baseball history to hit two home runs in a postseason game that he hadn't started. He is now the oldest player (40 years, 130 days) to hit a walkoff postseason home run (left).
