Angels Clinch, Scare All Teams

Where else can you see Torii Hunter do the backstroke in a puddle on the clubhouse floor while serving a two-game suspension?

Nowhere other than the puddle of champagne and beer, soaked with the sweet taste of victory after winning the American League West.

The Los Angeles Angels became the first team to clinch a playoff spot this season, seizing the division title Wednesday evening after their 4-2 victory over the New York Yankees.

Meanwhile, Francisco Rodriguez earned his 56th save -- which is nothing short of incredible, -- with just 17 games remaining in the Halos' season.

(Yay playoffs tag)

Oh yeah, and in Torii's absence, righty Justin Speier wore #48 on the field in his honor. Aaawww.

I'm happy for Torii, but sad he's not a Twin anymore. :(
