The Braves sure haven't done much to fan the flames of the Stephen Strasburg phenomenon. Dan Uggla and Jason Heyward homered off the young Washington Nationals ace and the Braves scored four in four innings against him in a 6-5 Grapefruit League game Wednesday night. Uggla had a two-run homer in the first inning and Heyward homered in the fourth. Uggla added a bases-loaded sacrifice fly in front of the left-field wall to make him 6-for-7 with two homers and eight RBIs lifetime against Strasburg. Strasburg is 0-2 with a 4.35 ERA in two regular-season starts against the Braves, 6-2 with a 2.31 ERA in 15 starts against everyone else. Heyward added a double off the right-field wall in the sixth for his best game of the spring. He was 4-for-28 with one extra-base hit before Wednesday.
