Hanson Pitches Gem, Braves reach 50 wins.

Tommy Hanson pitches another great game for the Braves, who became the third team in the MLB to reach 50 wins behind the Phillies and Yankees.

Freddie Freeman hit a two-run jack in the bottom of the first, and a solo homer in the 8th. Jason Heyward doubled in the 6th as the Braves beat Ubaldo Jimenez and the Rockies 4-1. The Braves total wins as a franchise reached 9,995, 5 away from 10,000 all-time.

Dan Uggla's struggles continue, so I'm going to start keeping track of his average for all you Braves fans out there. We will call it the Ugglometer. So today on the Ugglometer, we have a .173 average. We'll see what happens tomorrow in the saga that is Dan Uggla's offensive season.

Tomorrow's pitching math up is the Braves' Derek Lowe (4-6 4.16 ERA) against Jhoulys Chacin (8-5 3.10 ERA).

Ugglometer: .173

Winning Streak: 1 Game!
