ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Kendry Morales homered and drove in three runs, and the Los Angeles Angels wasted no time clinching their fifth AL West title in six seasons with an 11-0 victory over the second-place Texas Rangers on Monday night.

Ervin Santana pitched a seven-hitter for his fourth career shutout, while Maicer Izturis had three hits and drove in two runs to wrap up the Angels' sixth playoff berth in eight seasons. Los Angeles (92-64) will open at home in the best-of-five first round next week.

Needing one win in this four-game series to clinch their third straight division title, the Angels swiftly eliminated any suspense.
