Yankees clinch 1st AL East title since 2012, reach 100 wins

NEW YORK (AP) Aroldis Chapman got Albert Pujols to swing over a slider in the dirt, and the New York Yankees jogged to the infield to exchange handshakes and hugs after clinching their first AL title since 2012.

No wild celebration, not this year.

Hours after the startling news that pitcher Domingo German was placed on administrative leave under Major League Baseball's domestic violence policy, the homer-happy Yankees routed the Los Angeles Angels 9-1 Thursday night to wrap up first place and breeze to their 100th win.
