"It’s fun, first and foremost," said Uggla of a streak that’s now the fourth longest in Atlanta Braves history.

"I felt like I could do a little more," Jones said Wednesday morning. "I was a little more active on defense. Running the bases still was a little iffy, but I figured give it today and tomorrow, then Friday would be that much better.
