Rafters and Javelinas to Play in AFL Championships

The Salt River Rafters won the East Division to advance to the championship of the Arizona Fall League (AFL). They will face the Peoria Javelinas, who tied with the Surprise Saguaros for first place in the West division, but the Javelinas advance because of a higher winning percentage, i.e. one less loss and two more tie games.

Peoria beat Surprise on the last day 5-2 to win the division. Surprise was the defending champions while Peoria won the 2012 championship. Salt River won in 2011. In the last four years the AFL has had four different teams win championships. This streak will end this year.
