The Tampa Bay Rays have locked up their first American League East title since 2010.

The Rays clinched the division title with a 5-3 win over the New York Mets on Wednesday.

Tampa Bay has a payroll of just over $28 million -- more than only the Pittsburgh Pirates and Baltimore Orioles.

"It feels great to win the division, no matter what division you're in," Kevin Kiermaier said. "But especially the American League East -- it's just a different animal."
