For the third time in franchise history, the Tampa Bay Rays are American League East champions.
The Rays clinched a division title thanks to their 8-5 victory over the New York Mets on Wednesday.
Entering the 2020 season, the East was shaping up to be a two-horse race between Tampa Bay and New York. The Yankees won the division by seven games in 2019, and the second-place Rays finished 12 games up on the third-place Boston Red Sox.
The Red Sox signaled their priorities for 2020 when they traded David Price and Mookie Betts to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
