• Although it's just a two-game sample, second baseman Dan Uggla, who struggled through a dismal 2013 season in which he hit just .179 and was left of the playoff roster, is swinging the bat better so far in '14. After going 0-for-4 in the season opener, Uggla had a pair of doubles in Tuesday night's 5-2 victory over the Brewers.
"He's had some great at-bats," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "He's only got [two] hits. But he's hitting the ball about as well as anybody on this team."
