Uggla extended his hitting streak to 31 games, the longest in the majors this season, with a two-run single in the first inning that sent the Braves past the Florida Marlins, 6-2, last night for a three-game sweep.
The Braves, who sent Florida to its seventh straight loss, are off today.
"Let's find a game for him to play tomorrow so he can stay hot," Gonzalez said. "We're going to send him to Gwinnett or Mobile or one of those places so he can keep swinging it."
"It's crazy," Uggla said. "Was that one of the things I thought about when I got over here? No, obviously not, but it's a cool thing."
Uggla went 3-for-5. It was his ninth multi-hit game during the longest hitting streak in the majors this season. He is batting .224 overall.
The Phillies won for the 12th time in 13 games and completed a 9-1 road trip. They improved baseball's best record to 77-40 -- Philadelphia is 37 games over .500 for the first time since 1977.
