Benches Clear Twice In Dodgers-Diamondbacks Game
The Los Angeles Dodgers have been a major disappointment all season long, and fans have been for their wake-up call. Last night might have been just what the doctor ordered thanks to the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks. It all started in the bottom of the 6th inning when Dodgers'rookie sensation Yasiel Puig was drilled in the face by an Ian Kennedy fast ball.
In the top of the 7th inning, Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke hit Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero in the back and the benches emptied.
Once cooler heads prevailed, Greinke came up to bat with one out in the bottom of the 7th inning with the game tied at 2. Kennedy decided to retaliate against Greinke, but instead of hitting him in the back, the Arizona pitcher aimed right at his head. Then, the fun started as players, coaches, and managers from both teams turned Dodger Stadium into a full scale pro wrestling Battle Royal.
The Dodgers came back to win the game 5-3, but afterwards Dodgers manager Don Mattingly talked about the brawls.
