The road hasn't been so kind.

The Braves are a league worst 7-21 on the road, and are 0-13 in one run games  away from Turner Field.

Tim Hudson (7-4) takes the mound against left-hander Jamie Moyer (6-3). Kyle Kendrick (5-2) and Jo-Jo Reyes (2-3) are slated to pitch on Saturday, with Adam Eaton (2-3) and Jorge Campillo (2-0) pitching the final game on Sunday.

Campillo has been a surprise for the Braves since moving from the bullpen to the rotation on May 20.

"I wouldn't say it's unexpected, but he got called up and has done some great things for us," Braves catcher Brian McCann said.

The Braves are three and a half games back in the standings from the Phillies. The Braves' are 1-2 against the Phillies this season.
