Ibanez's slam came during a seven-run first inning. Yankees backup shortstop Alberto Gonzalez got the final out in the ninth inning in his first professional pitching appearance.
The Mariners chased Phil Hughes (2-3) after he got only two outs in the first. Trying to preserve his bullpen, Yankees manager Joe Girardi had Brett Marshall throw 108 pitches in his big league debut, then brought in Gonzalez.
Ibanez has connected three times in the first two games of his return to the ballpark in which -- last year at 40 years old -- he electrified crowds in late September and October with several key homers in the Yankees' run to the AL championship series.
The first-inning burst made it easy for Hisashi Iwakuma (5-1).
RED SOX 9, RAYS 2
Price (1-4) departed from the marquee pitching matchup because of left triceps tightness during Boston's eight-run third inning, which Drew finished with his towering homer off Jamey Wright.
Coming off a one-hit, complete game shutout of Toronto, Lester (6-0) allowed two runs in seven innings to help end the Rays' season-best six-game winning streak.
The Red Sox, meanwhile, stopped a three-game losing streak.
RANGERS 6, ATHLETICS 2
Ogando (4-2) didn't allow a hit until Eric Sogard's leadoff double in the sixth inning.
Dan Straily (1-2) took the loss.
ASTROS 7, TIGERS 5
DETROIT -- Brandon Barnes caught Miguel Cabrera's bases-loaded drive against the wall in right-center field for the final out, and the Houston Astros avoided a season sweep against the Detroit Tigers.
Carlos Corporan hit a tiebreaking double in the top of the ninth for the Astros, who lost their first six meetings with the Tigers by a combined 50-12.
Jose Veras pitched the ninth for his fifth save in seven chances.
PADRES 8, ORIOLES 4
BLUE JAYS 11, GIANTS 3
TORONTO -- J.P. Arencibia and Adam Lind each hit two-run home runs, Ramon Ortiz won for the first time since 2011 and the Toronto Blue Jays won their season-high fourth straight game, beating the San Francisco Giants.
Ortiz (1-1) allowed one run and six hits in seven innings for his first win since beating the Mets in a relief appearance with the Cubs on Sept. 11, 2011. He had not won as a starter since pitching for Minnesota in April 2007.
Ryan Vogelsong (1-4) allowed a season-high eight runs, three earned, in two innings. He has an 8.06 ERA this season.
WHITE SOX 9, TWINS 4
Dunn hit a pair of two-run shots for his 35th career multihomer game. He's hit three home runs in the last two games and has nine this year.
Mike Pelfrey (3-4) was hit hard yet again, failing to record an out in the fifth inning.
