Dustin Ackley’s hard work starting to pay off

After being demoted to Triple-A Tacoma in May and converting to the outfield with Nick Franklin’s emergence at second base, Dustin Ackley is fighting his way back to being a big league hitter. Sunday offered a glimmer of hope. Ackley went 3-for-4 with two RBI in the Mariners’ 12-5 win over the Houston Astros at Minute Maid Park. (Tacoma News Tribune)
