Uggla's streak at 32, Braves beat Cubs

ATLANTA (AP) - Dan Uggla belted a pair of solo homers off Carlos Zambrano to extend his hitting streak to an Atlanta-record 32 games and lead the Braves to a 10-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs on Friday night.

Uggla passed Rico Carty's 31-game streak in 1970 for the longest in Atlanta Braves history when he led off the second with his 25th homer.

Zambrano (9-7) gave up eight runs and eight hits, including a career-worst five homers, in 4 1/3 innings.

Zambrano was ejected by umpire Tim Timmons in the fifth inning after throwing two inside pitches to Chipper Jones, the second going all the way to the backstop. The brush-back pitches followed homers by Freddie Freeman and Uggla.

Jones and Jose Constanza also went deep against Zambrano.
