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. Kennedy hit Yasiel Puig in the nose in the sixth inning before Greinke hit Montero in the top of the seventh inning in apparent retaliation. Both benches were warned then, and tempers boiled over when Kennedy hit Greinke in the seventh. Greinke, who missed five weeks with a fractured collarbone earlier this season when Carlos Quention charged the mound after being hit by a pitch in early April, was not suspended. Montero said he did not want to start anything. "The last thing I wanted to do was get suspended. I know hes a little chicken(expletive). I didnt want to fight," Montero said. Dodgers hitting coach Mark McGwire, who aimed harsh words at Gibson as the scrum escalated and was restrained by D-backs third base coach Matt Williams, was suspended for two games. Dodgers right-hander Ronald Belasario was suspended for one. Montero, Greinke, Puig and Gerardo Parra were fined. Even some Dodgers players were surprised that Hinske was given such a severe suspension, with one saying Hinske acted as a peacemaker. Hinske said he was struck in the back by a Puig punch. "I wasnt trying to throw any punches at anybody," Hinske said. "I was trying to get it under control. There are 50 guys out there. Your head has to be on a swivel. It happens quick. Youre confused. Some pushing happens, but I never threw a punch. "I dont know what five games is for, but Im appealing the process. I hope it all comes out in the end. Ive been a model citizen in this league for 12 years. Then there is Puig, who has 12 games in the big leagues and gets no games. You tell me whats right." Follow Jack Magruder on Twitter
