Now that the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have punched their ticket to the postseason they can focus on an American League West title.
They try to move one step closer to that goal on Tuesday when they continue a four-game series with the Seattle Mariners at Angel Stadium.
Los Angeles became the first team to secure a playoff berth on Monday, as Albert Pujols hit a three-run double to help the Angels to an 8-1 victory.
While the Angels clinched at least a wild card spot with the victory, they moved 10 1/2 games ahead of the Oakland Athletics for first place in the AL West. They have a magic number of three to nail down their first division title since 2009.
