BALTIMORE (AP) This one goes a long way toward making up for all the losing seasons, the meaningless Septembers and meager crowds at Camden Yards for the final games on the schedule.

The Baltimore Orioles are AL East champions for the first time since 1997, and they marked the occasion with a celebration that lasted long after the final out of their clinching 8-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Tuesday night.

"There are some great moments in your life," manager Buck Showalter said. "This ranks right up there."
