Dan Uggla‘s hitting streak, halted at 14 games when he went 0-for-3 with a walk Sunday, was restored Monday after an official scorer changed his mind about a sixth-inning grounder.

The grounder, originally ruled an error by Miguel Cairo, was changed to a hit today, extending Uggla’s hitting streak to 15 games.

Even though he has a modest 18 hits during the 15 games, Uggla’s average has climbed from .173 to .197 during the streak.  If he can keep it going just a little longer, he could see .200 again for the first time since May 17.

Uggla has been quite a bit better than the average suggests for a while now, though.  Since June 12, he has 11 homers, 24 RBI and 16 walks in 36 games.  In his first 65 games, he had seven homers, 16 RBI and 19 walks.

    OK, proudlycanadian asked me to delete his comment, which was obviously in the wrong thread. Since all of the responses were to that comment, I just went and nuked them all — I thought that was the best solution that left no one embarrassed.

    If you want your comment back up, go ahead and repost it.

    Swing hard in case you hit it, Dan.

      Swing away, Merrill.
