Dustin Ackley staying hot in the desert

It looks like Dustin Ackley has taken what he learned in the Minor League playoffs to the Arizona Fall League. Ackley homered and drove in two runs to lead the Peoria Javelinas to a 7-4 win over the Scottsdale Scorpions on Monday. The second overall pick by the Mariners in 2009, Ackley slugged a solo blast with two outs in the first inning. (MLB.com)
