The Tampa Bay Rays are the American League Champs. And why wouldn't it take to the last day, and a game that went into extra innings to decide it?! We knew we had won the title when the Yankees lost to the Red Sox (the ONLY time I will ever cheer on the Sox!), but we wanted the best record in the East. We trailed the KC Royals for most of the game, coming back in the top of the 9th to tie. Then it took til the 12th for Rocco Baldelli to score the winning run and then closer Raphael Soriano came in for the save.
The Rays will have home field advantage throughout the Playoffs. We face the Texas Rangers starting Wed afternoon at 1:30. Should be another nail-biter of a series!
