Growing up in Texas, Lance Broadway acknowledged that his first instinct as a young pitcher was to throw hard like fellow Texans Nolan Ryan and Roger Clemens. And when that didn't work, his solution was to throw even harder.But after three years of playing baseball at the college level, Broadway is a lot smarter and whole lot better. In fact, the 6-foot-4, right-hander from Texas Christian University has been one of the most dominating pitchers in college baseball this year. The junior communications major had a 12-1 record and 125 strikeouts for the Horned Frogs, both TCU records, going into his start against No. 1 Tulane on Thursday. He also had three complete games and a 1.94 ERA, giving up just 70 hits, 30 walks and 27 runs over 93 innings.
