Texas' offense sputtered in a 5-1 loss to Baltimore, knocking them out of the playoffs.

So much has already happened in this year's MLB Playoffs as teams begin their quest for a World Series title.

The Oakland Athletics and Baltimore Orioles are shockingly in the playoffs. The A's captured the division crown after sweeping the Texas Rangers, who blew a five-game lead with nine to play, to end the regular season. The Orioles earned one of the two AL Wild Card berths and took down the Rangers in a winner-take-all game to advance and face the Yankees.

The National League's winner-take-all game was marred with controversy on an infield fly rule call that tainted the Cardinals' 6-3 win.  

With the Divisional Series games already underway, five players in these playoffs must have a killer performance to propel their teams one step closer to the World Series.
