MIAMI - Dan Uggla extended his hitting streak to 29 games and Alex Gonzalez hit a three-run homer to help the Atlanta Braves beat the slumping Florida Marlins 8-5 Monday night.
Uggla beat out a grounder to short for an infield single in the fifth inning to extend the longest active hitting streak in the majors. He's tied with Rowland Office for the second-longest streak in franchise history behind Rico Carty's 31 in a row in 1970.
After Uggla and Chipper Jones singled, Gonzalez hit his 10th home run off Brad Hand (1-4).
Uggla added a sacrifice fly in the sixth against his former team. Freddie Freeman, whose career-best 20-game hitting streak ended Sunday, had a two-run single.
Derek Lowe (7-10), who had lost his past three starts, allowed two runs in six innings.
