From Larry Brown Sports:
The Orioles missed tying Game 5 of the ALDS against the Yankees by inches when umpires ruled that a fly ball hit by left fielder Nate McLouth was foul.
McLouth was batting in the top of the sixth with the Orioles down 1-0 went he blasted a 3-1 pitch deep down the right field line. The ball seemed to be foul, but then it started curving toward the pole at the last second.
The initial call by the right field umpire was that the ball was foul. The umpires gathered to review the play using instant replay, and they let the original call on the field stand. McLouth struck out on the next pitch.
Later in the game, TBS sideline reporter Craig Sager says he spoke with an usher who believed the ball "nicked" the foul pole.
Replays were inconclusive, but after seeing zoomed-in, spot-shadowed looks on TBS, I believe it did touch the pole. The trajectory of the ball changed as it got to the pole.
Instead of being tied 1-1, the Orioles remained down 1-0 and didn't get on the board until the eighth inning. They lost the game 3-1, and the Yankees advanced to the ALCS.

Derek Jeter suffered an ankle injury during the 12th inning against the Tigers and is done for the postseason for the Yankees.
Jason Hammel underwent arthroscopic right knee surgery in July of this year. He came back in September only to tweak the knee again. He was able to rest and rehab before the Baltimore Orioles took on the Texas Rangers in the American League Wild Card game. Hammel made his return during the postseason and pitched two games. Now, it looks like he will be alright to proceed...

Derek Jeter had to be removed from Game Three of the New York Yankees division series victory over the Baltimore Orioles. He left in the eighth inning after striking out and apparently re-aggravating the bone bruise that has been bothering him for weeks now. However, he was able to play in Game Four, and last night he showed no ill-effects as the Yankees took down the Orioles...
Joba Chamberlain had to leave the New York Yankees' loss last night to the Baltimore Orioles after being hit by the barrel of Matt Weiters' bat. Chamberlain tried to stay in the game after being hit, but the Yankees aired on the side of caution and removed him.
According to Dan Connolly of the Balitmore Sun, Chamberlain suffered a contusion from the bat.
Joe Girardi's bold move in the ninth inning of a playoff game - pinch hitting Raul Ibanez for Alex Rodriguez - was hailed as courageous and admirable.

I've been stuck on said 50% since I picked up the below sometime early in 2012 or late in 2011. Yeah, it was THAT long ago.

NEW YORK -- Another logic-defying moment for Raul Ibanez and the New York Yankees eventually gave way to a 12-inning defeat to the Detroit Tigers. Even more shocking and devastating to the Yankees than their 6-4 defeat was the season-ending loss of Yankees captain Derek Jeter. One of the greatest postseason players in the game's history was carried off the field with a broken...

Seriously, Tiger Fan, Get On This
10) It's somewhat telling that many of the Yankee fans in my social media feeds posted after the Raul Ibanez tying home run in the ninth, but not after the final outcome9) If the Yankees' infield defense improves now that Derek Jeter is out for the year, it's all a testament to his leadership8) Somehow, it just seems really wrong that...
