Despite losing to the New York Yankees 5-3 last night, the Boston Red Sox clinched the American League East championship yesterday when the Baltimore Orioles defeated the second-place Toronto Blue Jays 3-2.

Not only did the Red Sox win the AL East, but the team accomplished a last-to-first rebound for the second time in five seasons. The Red Sox won the 2013 World Series, then finished last in the division in 2014 and 2015.
KC's View:
I am, of course, rooting for the Mets to go to the World Series. (They have to get into the playoffs first, of course.) But if the Mets don't make it, I hope that it ends up being a Boston Red Sox-Chicago Cubs series ... it would be classic.
