SAN DIEGO -- The mood in the Diamondbacks clubhouse was one of disbelief bordering on anger after Ian Kennedy and Eric Hinske received the most serious suspensions from Tuesday's massive brawl with the Dodgers.
Kennedy was suspended for 10 games and Hinske for five, while Dodgers players J.P. Howell and Skip Schumaker were suspended for two games apiece. Kennedy and Hinske plan to appeal, and they will be available until their appeals are heard, a process that usually takes several weeks.
"Ten games, I think they are trying to set an example," said Kennedy, who has thrown inside his whole career.
Added Miguel Montero: "Its not right. I dont know what camera they were looking at."
Arizona manager Kirk Gibson and Los Angeles manager Don Mattingly were suspended for one game for their teams actions, in which four players were hit by pitches and benches cleared after Kennedy hit Dodgers starter Zack Greinke in the left shoulder in the seventh inning of the Dodgers 5-3 victory.
