An awful performance by the Mariners last night had a highlight. New call-up Dustin Ackley hits his first MLB home run.
It would be the only run support Felix would get. The Mariners let this game slip away 5-1. It is great to see Dustin hit a single in his very first at bat off Roy Oswalt. The first homer came off Vance Worley. While Dustin is only 2 for 8 so far, he is surviving. His defense has been good, and he will continue to improve. I'm really starting to like the look of this Mariners future.
