Chicago Cubs second baseman Darwin Barney went a loooong way to rob Dan Uggla of a sure bloop single today, ranging deep into right field to make a spectacular diving grab.It would just be another web gem on Baseball Tonight later if Uggla had not ended the day 0-3 (with a sacrifice fly.)

That means his 33-game hitting streak is over.

MLB won’t let us embed or post the video of the catch, but you can watch it on their website.
