Brown showed a nastiness no former <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="ORSPT000174" title="Miami Marlins" href="/topic/sports/baseball/miami-marlins-ORSPT000174.topic">Marlins</a> starter had ever had when, in his fifth start with the franchise--and the inning after teammate <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="PESPT001370" title="Greg Colbrunn" href="/topic/sports/greg-colbrunn-PESPT001370.topic">Greg Colbrunn</a> had been drilled by Dodgers starter Pedro Astacio--Brown threw a pitch that whizzed behind Astacio's back. Brown ended up with a 1.89 ERA, more than a full run better that the <a class="taxInlineTagLink" id="EVSPR000088" title="Cy Young Award" href="/topic/sports/baseball/cy-young-award-EVSPR000088.topic">Cy Young Award</a> winner, John Smoltz. Had another excellent season in 1997, though he was outshined by his fellow starters in those playoffs.
