ATLANTA, Ga -- A scoring change from Sunday's game in Cincinnati
has given Dan Uggla, hitting below .200, a 15-game hitting streak
and a claim to a statistical anomaly.

According to STATS, LLC, Uggla's .197 batting average is the
lowest for any player since 1946 to carry a hitting streak of 15
games or longer after at least 100 games.

Third baseman Miguel Cairo was given an error on Uggla's
sixth-inning at-bat in the Reds' 4-3 win on Sunday. The Braves say
the ruling was changed to a hit for Uggla on Monday.

According to STATS, Julio Lugo was hitting .225 through a
15-game hitting streak through 102 games for Boston in 2007. That
was the previous low mark for a player with a 15-game streak this
late in the season.
