Rangers win the West

The Texas Rangers are AL West champions again.
Josh Hamilton and Adrian Beltre hit long home runs and Craig
Gentry had an inside-the-park homer in a 5-3 victory over Seattle
on Friday night. About two hours later, the Rangers had their
second consecutive division title after the Los Angeles Angels lost
to Oakland.
The regular Friday night fireworks show went on as usual after
the Rangers (91-66) finished their game.
Fans were then invited to stick around and watch the Angels on
the stadium's large video screen. Several thousand fans stayed in
the stands and many of the Rangers players sat on the field with
their families.
It is the fifth division title for Texas, which last year went
to its first World Series.
