News: Uggla went 3-for-4 with a walk and a run scored in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Phillies.
Impact: The 35-year-old found his way into the lineup for the second time in the series after not making a single start during the first 25 days of June. Uggla stepped in for Danny Espinosa, who took over at the hot corner for Yunel Escobar (hand). Escobar did return for Game 2, however, so it seems likely Uggla will continue to serve mostly as a pinch-hitter.
