Attitude adjustment has Beckham rolling

CHICAGO -- Gordon Beckham extended his hitting streak to 10 games with a run-scoring single in Sunday's 4-2 victory over the Mariners, coming off a three-hit, four-RBI performance in Saturday's loss. But in Beckham's opinion, it's an attitude return as much as a swing improvement leading to this recent run of success at the plate.

"I feel like I'm back to being the guy I was and the guy I've been," Beckham said. "The guy I just kind of pushed under the rug for a long time. I just feel like I'm prepared to hit and ready to hit and that's allowing me to get in a good position and allowing me to do the things I'm capable of doing.

"That's all you can ask for. You don't know where the ball is going to go, but if you are squaring it up, you should get some hits."
