News: Samardzija took a tough-luck loss Saturday, as he was outdueled by Philadelphia's Cliff Lee, despite striking out eight and allowing just two runs over seven innings. Impact: Samardzija tossed seven shutout innings on Opening Day, and his fast start is encouraging, even though it hasn't included any wins. Run support will likely be an issue all season, as Cubs manager Dale Sveum doesn't have much to work with in terms of offensive talent. Next up for Samardzija is a likely Friday start in St. Louis, and while it's a tough matchup, Shark is at least scheduled to face Joe Kelly, rather than one of the Cardinals' other four starters.(RotoWire, )
