Uggla extends hitting streak to 31, Braves sweep

MIAMI (AP) - Dan Uggla extended his hitting streak to 31 games and Tim Hudson pitched into the eighth inning, leading the Atlanta Braves over the Florida Marlins 6-2 on Wednesday night for a three-game sweep.

Uggla's two-run single in the first inning tied Rico Carty for the second-longest hitting streak in franchise history. Tommy Holmes hit in 37 straight for the Boston Braves in 1945.

Uggla has the longest hitting streak in the majors this season. The top streak by a second baseman is 35 games, shared by Chase Utley (Phillies, 2006) and Luis Castillo (Marlins, 2002).
