Dan Uggla improved his hitting streak to 28 games with an eighth-inning single off of Bobby Parnell in Sunday's 6-5 victory over the Mets. It was the fourth time during his streak it took until Uggla's final at-bat of a game to extend his streak.
Uggla was 1 for 5 in the game that saw teammate Freddie Freeman's hitting streak snapped at 20 games. Freeman was 0 for 4.
Uggla's streak ties the longest for a Brave since Marquis Grissom got halfway to DiMaggio with his own 28-game hitting streak in 1996. Atlanta's record is 31 games set by Rico Carty in 1970.@cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
