Ackley gets start at second base

mlineup0805

For the first time since he was called back up from Tacoma in late June, Dustin Ackley is starting at second base tonight against the Blue Jays. All his previous appearances have been in center or left field (21 starts), plus one brief stint at first base. Ackley started 41 games at second base this year prior to his demotion, including Opening Day in Oakland.

Slumping Nick Franklin, hitless in his last 24 at-bats, is out of the lineup for the second game in a row. Don’t know yet if there’s a physical ailment involved.
