Dustin Ackley BP swing vs game swing

I don't know why I'm just noticing this, but I've never heard anyone talk about Ackley's swings in games. I've watched Dustin Ackley take batting practice dozens of time and his swing looks effortless and incredible. But when he swings in games it looks COMPLETELY different (much worse, to me). Can anyone try and explain this for me?

Is he trying to do too much at the plate? Have the coaches changed his swing style? Why would his BP swing be soooo much different from his game swing. Granted, his BP swing is much longer than his short game swing, but why wouldn't he practice that swing in BP if that is what he is actually going to use?
