Colorado Rockies outfield prospect Corey Dickerson's impressive Arizona Fall League campaign continued Wednesday night as he helped the Salt River Rafters clinch the East Division title with a 6-4 win over the Peoria Javelinas.

Dickerson extended his hitting streak to 12 games while going 4-for-4 with a triple, 2 RBIs and 2 runs scored. The win earned the Rafters a spot in the AFL title game.

Dickerson - who put up a line of .304/.358/.542 across two levels in the minors this past season - started slowly in the Fall League, going 1-for-14. He has picked up the pace enough to lead the team with a .387 batting average. Wednesday nights' game marked the second 4-hit game in eight days. His triple in the bottom of the fifth inning scored two to put the Rafters up 5-2, which proved to be the decisive runs.

MLB.com lists Dickerson as the Rockies' No. 19 prospect.
