Fans find Red Sox AL East title banner in street outside Boston

With a 10½-game lead, It's no secret the Boston Red Sox are going to win the American League East title.

Still, several fans in Massachusetts were stunned to find a banner honoring the team's imminent third consecutive division title.

Getting coffee in Somerville, just north of Boston, Louie Iacuzzi, James Amaral and Randy Baldasarri spotted a large object in the street.

"One person ran it over and hit it a little bit, and then I'm like, 'Pull over. What is it?'" Iacuzzi told WFXT-TV.

A Red Sox spokesman told the station that the banner had fallen off a delivery truck and the club was planning on sending a courier to pick up the banner on Wednesday.

Boston can clinch the division Wednesday night with a win against the New York Yankees.
