Dan Uggla's Hitting Streak Ends at 33; Fun While It Lasted!!

Dan Uggla's hitting streak has finally come to an end after 33 games.  Today against the Chicago Cubs, the Atlanta Braves second baseman went 0-3.

Uggla's hitting streak was the longest in the MLB since Chase Utley hit safely 35 games in a row in 2006.  He felt short of the franchise record set by Tommy Holmes in 1945 for the Boston Braves.

During the streak, Uggla hit 15 home runs and 32 RBIs, raising his batting average from .173 to .231.

The Braves are currently 9 games behind Philly in the NL East, and are leading the Wild Card chase (four games ahead of San Francisco).
