The 2018 Boston Red Sox are the winningest team in franchise history. 

With a 6-2 victory over Baltimore Orioles on Monday, the Red Sox set a new franchise record with their 106th win. That broke the tie they had with the 1912 team, which went 105-47 en route to a World Series championship. 

With the win, the Red Sox also clinched home-field advantage through the postseason.

While the record season and three straight AL East titles are nice, Boston’s sights are on something greater: a World Series championship. 

“We haven’t won what we want to win yet,” star outfielder Mookie Betts said after the team clinched the division in New York.

Still, for a franchise that is 117 years old, it’s a great accomplishment to attain a team record for the most wins in a single season. 

In Monday’s win, Betts hit his 32nd home run of the season as the Red Sox built a 4-0 lead in the second inning. Starting pitcher Nathan Eovaldi allowed just one run and struck out 10 batters in five innings of work.

The Orioles (45-111) , meanwhile, became the sixth AL team and the first since the 2003 Tigers to lose 111 games, falling 60½ games behind Boston (106-51) in the division. It’s the first time since 1939 that teams separated by 60 wins in the standings have played each other.
