Atlanta’s Dan Uggla extended his hitting streak to 31 games Wednesday.
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 went 3-for-5. It was his ninth multihit game during the longest hitting streak in the majors this season. He is batting .224 overall this year.

Logan Morrison hit his 17th home run for the Marlins, who have lost seven straight.
Eric Hinske also drove in two runs for the Braves, who have won six of seven and are a season-best 20 games over .500.

Hudson (12-7) allowed two runs in 71�3 innings and struck out seven. The Marlins scored twice off him in the eighth.

Jonny Venters relieved in the ninth, coming in to strike out Brett Hayes with the bases loaded to record his fourth save in six chances.
