Mariners move hot-hitting Dustin Ackley to leadoff spot


In 11 games since the All-Star break, Ackley is hitting .444 (20 for 45) with seven doubles and one triple. Ackley says he won’t change anything — he’ has done it enough to know that you can’t do that and hit leadoff. He won’t be trying to channel Rickey Henderson. “In Triple A, when I started leading off, I think it was kind of getting those thoughts out of your head,” he said. (Seattle Times)
