Dan Uggla continued to stick it to his former team, blasting another three-run home run to power the Braves to a 5-1 victory over the Marlins Saturday at Turner Field. 

Anibal Sanchez had one very bad inning in his five frames against the Braves, and it would end up being the difference in the game. In the third, the Braves scored 4 runs off of Sanchy, three of those via another three-run homer by the streaking Uggla. 

Meanwhile, the Fish had next to no luck against Tim Hudson, who went seven innings and allowed just one run on six hits. The lone run came in the top of the sixth when Emilio Bonifacio doubled, then scored on Omar Infante's RBI single. 

One run obviously wasn't enough, and the Marlins dropped the series-decider to the red-hot Braves.
