Tuesday night, the Astros defeated the Blue Jays 4-1 and waited to see the result of the A’s-Mariners game. If the A’s lose, the AL West would be clinched by Houston.
Thanks to extra inning magic and a walk-off homerun by the Mariners, the Astros are your 2018 AL West Division Champions. This marks back-to-back division titles for the first time since 1997-1999 when the Astros won the NL Central three years in a row.
Houston will play the series finale at Toronto today and then travel to Baltimore for the final four games of the regular season against the Orioles, Thursday-Sunday.
The Astros will play the Indians in the ALDS starting Friday, October 5th at Minute Maid Park.
