Marlins win 5-4 to hurt Braves' postseason hopes

By  | 

ATLANTA (AP) - Dan Uggla hit his 31st homer and the Florida
Marlins damaged Atlanta's playoff hopes, winning 5-4 Tuesday night
to snap the Braves' seven-game winning streak.

Atlanta, which had won eight of 10 and 15 of 17, began the night
two games behind NL wild card-leading Colorado with six games left.

Chris Coghlan had three hits and scored twice for the Marlins,
who had last three of four. Florida would be eliminated from
playoff contention if the Rockies beat Milwaukee later Tuesday.
