Dustin Ackley is batting .435 (10-for-23) over his last six games.

Ackley was batting .145 after an 0-for-3 performance on April 19, but he's strung together a six-game hitting streak since that includes a pair of three-hit contests. The second baseman batted in the No. 5 spot on Thursday, the highest he's been in the order this season. "I feel right now as good as I have the whole season - even better so than spring training," he said. "I'm just going to continue doing those things that I've been doing in the cage and BP and in the game, and hopefully they'll keep working out."
