It was just another Padres-Dodgers game in the sixth inning when a 3-2 fastball hit Carlos Quentin in the shoulder.
Quentin was none to happy about the plunking and headed toward Zack Greinke on the mound, when words were exchanged between the two. This led to complete chaos as both teams benches and bullpens cleared and there was pushing and shoving all over the field. As soon as everyone thought the fireworks were over, another incident broke out involving Jerry Hairston and a few members of the Padres. The Dodgers went on to win 3-2 but were not done talking after the game. Matt Kemp confronted Carlos Quentin leaving the stadium and had to be restrained by security and police. Just when the Dodgers didn’t think it could get worse they found out that Greinke broke his collarbone and will be out 8 weeks. The Padres will also lose their slugger Carlos Quentin for 8 games, a suspension, Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly thought should have been much longer. I guess you can say this is becoming more than just a division rivalry in southern California.
