Mariners' Ackley doesn’t worry about where he bats in lineup


Left fielder Dustin Ackley, back atop the Seattle Mariners lineup, contends one popular view for the leadoff role — making a concerted effort to see pitches — is a counter-productive approach. At least for him. Ackley served as the Mariners' leadoff hitter Wednesday for the second straight game. He was 3-for-5 in Tuesday's victory when he filled the role for the first time since last season. (Tacoma News Tribune)
