Raul Ibanez and Eric Chavez don't move around quite like they used to. They can't play every day and aren't able to do the same things in the field that they have in the past.
But that's not why the veterans are on the roster.
They are around for nights like last night, when they delivered clutch home runs in a four-run seventh as the Yankees came back to beat the Mets, 4-3, at Citi Field.
Ibanez struck first, after Mark Teixeira led off the inning with a walk and Nick Swisher doubled thanks in part to Lucas Duda's terrible play in right. That brought up Ibanez, who turned on a Chris Young pitch and sent a line drive over the right-field wall to tie the game.
"[Young] was pitching well," Ibanez said. "He was using his fastball, a sneaky fastball. You look up [at the scoreboard] and it's 84-85 [mph], but it seems a lot harder than that."
