What a week.

This is what baseball fans around the world were hoping for—that the last week of MLB's regular season would be filled with drama and intrigue as multiple teams battle for a chance to play meaningful baseball in October.

But before we can look ahead to what awaits us in the season's 26th and final week, we need to understand how we got here.

Last week saw four of the six divisional races come to an abrupt end, leaving only six remaining playoff spots available and nine teams still mathematically alive to clinch one.

We saw a team officially go from worst to first, another clinch back-to-back division crowns and yet another hopeful of starting a new decade of dominance after winning its first division title in eight years.

We also saw Mariano Rivera's farewell tour reach its final destination, with a grand celebration at Yankee Stadium befitting a living legend.

Let's take a look back at the biggest winners and losers over the last seven days of action.
