All 5 of the Angels runs were scored in the 7th, lead by a 3-run home run for C.J Cron, his 11th big fly of the season. Kole Calhoun added an RBI that inning, along with another run coming in on a Chris Denorfia error. The Angels would combine for 4 hits, including 3 walks in the 5-run inning.
C.J Wilson did not need much help as he pitched 7 stellar innings of 1-hit baseball. He struck out 7 and walked just 3. Joe Smith and Huston Street would shut down the 8th/9th for the eventual AL West Champions. James Paxton went 6.2 innings, charged with 3 earned runs, but had 8 strikeouts for Seattle.
After the game the Angels went to watch the A's/Rangers game, needing an A's loss to clinch the division. Fans also stayed at the stadium to watch the same game on the big screen. When they tuned in it was an A's 1-0 lead in the 8th, with Jeff Samardzija dominating. But Sean Doolittle would blow the save in the 9th, giving up a game-tying double to Roughned Odor, and the go-ahead home run to J.P. Arencibia.
Fans at the stadium would begin to celebrate, and the real celebration began after the final out in Oakland. The Angels would come out of the locker room to celebrate their first division title since 2009 with their fans. It is also their first division title since Mike Trout has been in the big leagues, and it'll be Trout's first taste of October baseball.
