NEW YORK, Oct. 2 (UPI) -- Raul Ibanez grounded a game-winning, 12th-inning RBI single Tuesday and the New York Yankees hung onto their divisional lead with a 4-3 victory over Boston.

Ibanez had forced extra innings when he lined a two-run homer off Bosox closer Andrew Bailey with none out in the bottom of the ninth, forging a 3-3 tie.

Then in the 12th, Francisco Cervelli and Curtis Granderson drew a two-out walks from Andrew Miller (3-2) and Ibanez followed by bouncing a pitch through the hole and into left field for the decisive hit.

Derek Lowe (9-11) tossed two scoreless innings to earn the win for the Yankees, who retained their one-game lead in the American League East with one regular-season game remaining.

Second-place Baltimore Orioles had edged Tampa Bay 1-0 earlier Tuesday.

James Loney homered while Dustin Pedroia and Cody Ross added RBI for the Red Sox.
