After losing 91 games in 2014 and 84 games last year, the Red Sox have reversed course in 2016 and are this year’s American League East champions.
The Sox celebrated a division title Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium after Toronto fell to Baltimore, 3-2. The Red Sox actually blew a 3-0 lead against the Yankees and lost when Mark Teixeira belted walk-off a grand slam. In essence, both the Yankees and Red Sox were celebrating in New York Wednesday.
They will participate in an American League Division Series beginning next week.
