It's been a day for the birds in MLB.
The Toronto Blue Jays clinched their first AL East title since 1993 with a 15-2 victory over the Baltimore Orioles in the first game of a doubleheader at Camden Yards in Baltimore. Marcus Stroman improved to 4-0 while Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion and Justin Smoak homered. The doubleheader had to be played due to a rain out yesterday in Baltimore. Interestingly, a majority of the fans at today's game were Jays fans who traveled from Toronto to see their team reach the post-season in person.
Currently, the Jays own the best record in the AL. If this holds then they will face the winner of the AL Wild Card Game in the ALDS. If the season were to end today that game would be between the New York Yankees and Los Angeles Angels who supplanted the Houston Astros for the second AL Wild Card spot yesterday. But the Angels are only two games back of the Texas Rangers in the AL West and play a four game series against the Rangers in Arlington beginning tomorrow. The Minnesota Twins also have a chance at the second AL Wild Card spot. Whoever wins the AL Wild Card game their next destination will be in Toronto.
