The Cubs will be on the road until the All-Star break, and if they want to hit that break feeling good about themselves, they'll need to find some way to turn around their struggles away from Wrigley Field; the Cubs are 10-29 on the road this season.

Jeff Samardzija (5-7, 5.05 ERA) is scheduled to start Monday's game for Chicago and Tommy Hanson (9-4, 3.59) will go for the Braves.
