Beat the Streak Report: Monday, August 15
Annnnd down goes Dan Uggla. The Braves second baseman saw his 33-game hitting streak go up in smoke after an 0-for-3 effort against Matt Garza, Darwin Barney and the rest of the Cubs on Sunday afternoon.
Current BTS leader jturner fared considerably better over the weekend, reaching 34 games thanks to Matt Kemp yesterday. Turner could be in a position to overtake the season lead — and the 10 G’s that come with it — as soon as Sunday.
Good luck, and may the horse be with you in the coming week.
