Ibanez’s Grand Slam Lifts Yankees Over Blue Jays

Raul Ibanez hit a tiebreaking grand slam with two outs in the eighth inning and the New York Yankees beat Toronto 6-3 on Monday after Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista left the game with a wrist injury.

Ibanez connected on a 3-1 pitch from Jason Frasor for a no-doubt drive into the first row of the second deck in right field to snap a 2-all tie.

Bautista injured his left wrist on a swing in the eighth and was removed from the game. He hit a long foul ball against David Robertson and immediately grabbed his wrist, dropping into a crouch outside the batter’s box.

He walked off the field, gently supporting the wrist with his right hand after being attended to by several Toronto staff members. No further details on the injury were immediately available.
