Brawl At Petco Leaves Greinke With Broken Collarbone [Video]
Tempers flared Thursday night, when Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke, hit San Diego Padres Carlos Quentin with a pitch in the sixth inning which led both benches to clear.
Quentin, initially took a few steps towards the mound before going into a full sprint for Greinke. Unfortunately for the Dodgers, Greinke took Quentin’s charge with a lowered shoulder resulting in a fractured collerbone. This is Quentin’s third time getting hit by Greinke in his career, however Quentin is no stranger to getting hit by pitches and has a significant record for it. In 2011, he led the league with 23 and last year led the NL with 17.
Although, most of the players who rushed the field were peacemakers, the same couldn’t be said for Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp, who early in the game had a pitch sail up towards his head. During the whole ordeal, Kemp had a few words for Padres manager Bud Black and was ejected for his actions.
It will be interesting to see what will happen on Monday(Jackie Robinson Day), when both teams open up a three game series against each other.
