Biscuits play for AFL title

The Biscuits have a stake in Saturday's Arizona Fall League championship game.

The Phoenix Desert Dogs take on the Grand Canyon Rafters and three of Desert Dogs pitchers are Biscuits: Jeremy Flanagan, Jeff Ridgway and Brian Henderson.

The Devil Rays have two other position players, though neither has played for Montgomery: Ben Zobrist and Fernando Perez. Perez is expected to be the Biscuits' center fielder next year. Former Auburn star Javon Moran, who's in Cincinnati's system, also plays for the Dogs.

The Biscuits are covered with the other team, too. Fernando Cortez, a Montgomery fan favorite who is now with the Kansas City Royals, plays for the Rafters.
