In the sixth inning of last night's Dodgers-Padres game, Los Angeles pitcher Zack Greinke plunked San Diego's Carlos Quentin on the elbow. The game was close and the count had been 3-2 — not typically intentional-beanball time.
Well, Quentin charged the mound and started an all-out brawl.
Upon impact, Quentin broke Greinke's collarbone.
Soon enough, both benches and bullpens were cleared.
Greinke's broken collarbone will likely sideline him for about two months.
Dodgers manager Don Mattingly: "[Quentin] should not play a game until Greinke can pitch."
Greinke: "He always seems to think I'm hitting him on purpose, but that's not the case."
