2007 American League East Champion Boston Red Sox

Twelve Years.

History was made tonight as the Boston Red Sox won the American League East for the first time since 1995, beating the Minnesota Twins, 5-2, while the Yankees collapsed in Baltimore, losing 10-9 in 10 innings, after leading 9-6 heading into the bottom half of the 9th inning.

The Red Sox division championship snapped a nine year streak of the Yankees finishing in first place, which they had done every year since 1998.

The Red Sox had occupied the top spot in the standings since April 18 and at one time held a 12 game lead on the Yankees.

The Red Sox win and Yankees loss, combined with the Indians winning tonight, means that the American League Division Series match ups are now set. The Red Sox will host the Los Angeles Angels and the Cleveland Indians will host the Yankees in best-of-five series beginning either Wednesday or Thursday next week. Of course I'll have up to date Red Sox Playoff information over on the sidebar, as I did with the Red Sox schedule throughout the season, so stay tuned.
