Dan Uggla hit two homers in his first game at Marlins Park, including a tape-measure blow off the home-run sculpture, and Tim Hudson pitched a five-hitter for his 13th career shutout Tuesday night to help the Atlanta Braves beat Miami 11-0.
Uggla hit a solo homer in the fourth inning, and he scored a direct hit on the middle of the sculpture with a two-run homer in the ninth estimated at 432 feet. That sent a thud reverberating throughout the ballpark and increased his homer total to 10 this season and 200 for his career.
Uggla also doubled and scored before hitting a two-run single to finish with four hits and five RBIs, both season highs. He spent his first five seasons with the Marlins and hit 78 home runs in their former home, the most by any player.
Hudson (4-2) struck out three, walked three and allowed only one runner to reach third base en route to his 25th complete game. He contributed a sacrifice fly and a run-scoring single for his first RBIs this year.
