A postgame interview with Kuroda
Dodgers starting pitcher talks about beating the Cubs in NLDS
By / MLB.com
Obviously the two starters before you in the series had very strong games. Did you talk with Derek and Chad at all about an approach you should take with these guys and did they contribute to some of the success tonight? HIROKI KURODA: I got really helpful advice from them, not just from these two games but throughout the season. They've been pitching really well and I learned a lot from them. And my objective for the season was to follow their lead. They were pitching really well and I wanted to pitch as well as they did.
