Dan Uggla hits home run number 30


Dan Uggla keeps etching his name in the record books.

Marlins second baseman Dan Uggla nailed a solo homer off Marlins killer Jamie Moyer in the second inning of the nightcap for his 30th of the season. He is the second Marlin to record three seasons with 30 or more homers, having hit 31 in 2007 and 32 last year. Ex-Marlin Miguel Cabrera is the other. Cody Ross added his career-high 23rd homer later.

All of the above is true, but Danny became the first Marlin to hit 30 home runs in three consecutive seasons.  Which incidentally are the only three season he has played for the Marlins or in the majors for that matter.  Now if I had some time to do the research on Rule 5 draft picks hitting 30 home runs in consecutive years, and I don't, I'm guessing he owns that record too.
