Atlanta Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez is giving 2B Dan Uggla and OF B.J. Upton more opportunities down the stretch, trying to let them work out of their slumps. "B.J. and I have struggled more than we can ever imagine," Uggla said. "Believe me, it's not from a lack of work and effort. We've had so many blisters on our hands from hitting in the cage. But now it's time to stop working on things. You've got to realize who you are as a hitter and what kind of hitter you are and go with it."
