Dan Uggla extends his Atlanta-record hitting streak to 32 games as he belts a pair of solo homers off the Cubs' Carlos Zambrano for a 10 - 4Braves win. Cubs starter Zambrano gives up a career-high 5 home runs, as he is tagged for 8 runs in 4 1/3 innings. After giving up Uggla's second homer and another by Freddie Freeman back-to-back, he throws two brushback pitches at Chipper Jones and is ejected by home plate umpire Tim Timmons. The long-time Cubs ace then cleans out his locker and leaves the ballpark, not informing manager Mike Quade or anyone else whether he is in fact retiring. The Cubs will place him on the disqualified list tomorrow. Before the game, the Braves officially retire uniform number 6, worn by long-time manager Bobby Cox who retired after last season.
