Marlins: Streak means more than hits to Bonifacio
Emilio Bonifacio's 26-game hit streak, which ended on Friday, will go down as the second longest in Marlins history.
Dan Uggla extended his hit streak to a Major League-best 21 games with a three-run homer in the third inning of Saturday's win over the Marlins. Braves veteran Chipper Jones isn't likely to make his return to the lineup in the series finale against the Marlins on Sunday. But Jones, who is recovering from a strained right quadriceps he suffered on Monday, isn't expected to be sent to the disabled list. "I think if we would have done that, we would have done that right off the bat," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. Worth noting
Gaby Sanchez currently leads all National League first basemen with a .997 fielding percentage. He has committed just three errors and has not made one in his last 26 games. The Marlins have never had a first baseman lead the NL in fielding. The Braves are 12-4 at home in July.
