AFL DESERT DOGS THREEPEAT AS CHAMPS


Brent Clevlen

The Phoenix Desert Dogs won their 3rd straight Arizona Fall League Title Saturday November 18, 2006 in Scottsdale, AZ with a 6-2 win over the Grand Canyon Rafters. Here is the boxscore from the game.

I’d like to say, “I was there”, but that would be a lie. 2006 was the year that I finally made it out to the desert to take in some Arizona Fall League action, but I left before the championship game was played. I’ll fill you in on my adventure later, but wanted to report on the title game before it became a distant memory. The Phoenix Desert Dogs were the only AFL team above .500 during the regular season and won their 3rd straight title, despite only getting four hits. Brent Clevlen (Detroit) was the hitting star, with a two run single & a solo homer. Fernando Perez (Tampa Bay) also drove in a pair of runs for Phoenix, as they triumphed over Grand Canyon 6-2. Virgil Vazquez (Detroit) allowed only one run over five innings of work to pick up the W.

CONGRATS PHOENIX DESERT DOGS!!!
