Jeff Samardzija had a rough outing against the Colorado Rockies on March 23 -- he allowed seven runs on 10 hits in just four innings of work. But he was able to bounce back nicely against Cleveland on Wednesday, going five innings and allowing zero runs. In the video below, Samardzija talks about the successful start against the Indians, and what might have been different from the Rockies game.
Samardzija already has secured a position in the 2012 Cubs starting rotation, as the team announced he will be their No. 3 starter.
