Dustin Ackley finally reaching potential for Seattle
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Mariners have finally been seeing glimpses of the Dustin Ackley they have envisioned since 2011.

Ackley slammed three more hits Sunday in his second straight start in the second hole in the lineup. He ripped two doubles on Saturday.

The 26-year-old Ackley boasts a .375 batting average in July. His .251 season mark is at its highest pointe since May and represents a 37-point rise since June 30.

"That's what we've been looking for all year," Lloyd McClendon told the Tacoma News-Tribune. "He's aggressive, he's attacking the baseball and he's using the entire field to hit. If he does that, he's a dangerous guy. I think he can sustain that."

Ackley, however, has not homered since blasting off twice on May 11.

Dustin Ackley starts off July with much-needed three-hit game
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mariners outfielder Dustin Ackley totaled three hits Tuesday at Houston, putting an end to a 0-for-20 slump in his previous seven games.

"It's just about getting yourself to the point where you step to the plate and you don't have to worry where your hands are or where this or that is," Ackley said, per MLB.com. "You are just up there, relaxed and comfortable. That's the big thing. When it comes down to it, it's more mental than anything. When you step up there and you don't quite feel right or don't have that confidence, it's hard to get a hit. When you are up there feeling good and relaxed, it takes all those other things away.

"To feel good and have the results to go behind it is pretty big. That's just kind of the day I needed, to be honest with you."

Ackley had a pretty rough June, batting .165 in 25 games. Though, manager Lloyd McClendon has given no indication he plans to remove Ackley from the starting lineup.

"We need him to be productive for us to continue to be successful," McClendon said. "It's really remarkable we've had the run we've had and he hasn't done much. We need him to step it up and pick up his production."
