Dan Uggla Extends Hitting Streak To 33 Games

Dan Uggla didn't waste any time in his quest for history as the Atlanta second baseman extended his hitting streak to 33 games with a first inning single off of Cubs starter Randy Wells on Saturday. By singling in his first at bat of the evening, Uggla avoids the late inning pressure to extend the streak. 

Uggla came to the plate with two outs and Freddie Freeman at first. After running the count to 1-2, Wells tried to paint an inside fast ball that had the Chicago hurler on his way to the dug out thinking he had struck out Uggla. The umpire didn't agree and Uggla singled on the next pitch. 

The hit raises Uggla's average to .231 which still isn't a great number until you consider the struggles that he went through during the early part of the season. 

Stay tuned to SB Nation Atlanta for complete coverage of Dan Uggla's quest for history.
