The Yankees have beaten the Red Sox 4-2 to secure the American League East title and the best record in the AL, which brings with it home-field advantage throughout the postseason

The Yankees (100-56) won the AL East for the first time since 2006 and positioned themselves for homefield advantage through these playoffs

Andy Pettitte hurled six strong innings, Hideki Matsui came through with a clutch two-run single and the Yankees celebrated clinching their 16th American League East title, posting a 4-2 victory over the Red Sox and completing a series sweep

Cano singled for his 200th hit this year. He joined Jeter as the only second base-shortstop teammate tandem to reach the mark in the same season, the Elias Sports Bureau said

Andy Pettitte (14-7) was terrific and perhaps cleared up any lingering concerns that his left shoulder is fatigued. He allowed seven hits and two runs in six innings, striking out four and walking three. Pettitte has won at least 14 games in a season 12 times
