Braves' Uggla hit in neck by pitch, says he's OK

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Atlanta second baseman Dan Uggla says he is fine after getting hit by a pitch in the back of the neck during the sixth inning of the Braves' 2-0 win over the New York Yankees on Tuesday night.

Uggla left the game after being struck by minor leaguer Branden Pinder's pitch.

"There's a little sensation," Uggla said. "I'm good. Luckily, I never went black or anything like that. I feel fine."

Ichiro Suzuki doubled for the Yankees in his first game since being involved in a vehicle accident.

Suzuki was not injured in the crash that totaled his SUV a few miles from Steinbrenner Field after last Saturday's game with Detroit.
