PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 3 (UPI) -- Dan Uggla's only hit Saturday, an RBI double, lifted Florida to a 4-3 win over the Philadelphia Phillies, their fourth straight.

Chris Coghlan led Florida with two hits and one RBI.

Closer Leo Nunez earned his 26th save with a scoreless ninth.

Jayson Werth led Philadelphia with two hits -- one an eighth-inning two-run homer.
