7/4 Cubs lineup
Cubs are underway with early start in Washington, D.C., vs. the Nationals. Here is the lineup in case you missed it:
* The Cubs have won six of their last seven road games dating to June 15, including victories in each of their last four road contests. The team has won four-straight road games for the first time since Sept. 7-12, 2012, at Pittsburgh (3-0) and at Houston (1-0), and today takes aim at a fifth-straight road victory for the first time since July 31-Aug. 4, 2011.
* The Cubs have released left-handed pitcher Jonathan Sanchez, who only appeared in one game for Triple-A Iowa on April 4, and gave up five earned runs on one hit, three walks over two-thirds of an inning.
