ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) _ John Lackey and the Los Angeles Angels gave their fans another reason to wave those rally monkeys.

The Angels clinched their third AL West title in four years Sunday, with Lackey leading them to a 7-4 victory over the Seattle Mariners.

After losing two in a row to the Mariners, the Angels clinched in their final home game of the season. Wearing red and roaring, fans were on their feet at the end.

Hours after Cleveland clinched the AL Central, the Angels locked up their spot. On Saturday night, Boston assured itself of at least an AL wild-card slot.
