Broxton Key to Kuroda’s Success

Dominating performance
Notes from Chavez Ravine: The Fox broadcasters surprisingly had an interesting tidbit on Hiroki Kuroda’s complete game shutout last night. Apparently Jonathan Broxton noticed something that seemed a bit off in Kuroda’s slider earlier in the week and offered up a tip on how he might want to adjust his delivery. The result? A four-hitter (along with 11 Ks) with several Cubs players saying that it was a slider that they hadn’t seen before. Great job Brox…love the teamwork!
