After fixing mechanics, Dustin Ackley looking like new hitter


Lloyd McClendon doesn't know if Dustin Ackley is more confident now than earlier this season. But the Mariners manager does have a new nickname that reflects his stoic left fielder's barely-groomed black beard and North Carolina upbringing. "The 'Mountain Man' is a hard guy to read," McClendon said. More clear is Ackley's penchant for finding his rhythm at the plate as the season chugs along. (MLB.com)
