The Los Angeles Dodgers rallied to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-3 on Tuesday night after a heated brawl involving players and coaches ensued, resulting in six ejections. Diamondbacks’ Ian Kennedy hit Dodgers star rookie Yasiel Puig in the face with a pitch in the bottom of the sixth. In the top of the seventh, starter Zack Greinke hit Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero in the back, and both teams went charging onto the field. No punches were thrown and the scrum was broken up quickly. “Puig gets hit in the face, Montero gets hit, it should have been really over at this point,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. But it wasn’t over. Still in the seventh, Kennedy hit Greinke with another high pitch leading to an all out brawl with punches thrown and players and coaches getting ejected. Kennedy, Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson and coach Turner Ward, along with Puig, reliever Ronald Belisario and Dodgers hitting coach Mark McGwire were all thrown out of the game. “I was out of my mind just trying to protect my teammates,” Belisario said. “If you want to hit somebody, don’t hit a pitcher. Don’t hit guys in the head. That’s crazy.” The post Dodgers-Diamondbacks brawl after Zack Greinke hit by pitch appeared first on Sports Glory.
BEST OF MAXIM
Upon further review regarding the Dodgers-Diamondbacks melee, I'm more worried about Yasiel Puig, less worried about Zack Greinke and astonished that baseball doesn't ban bench-clearing brawls.
I'm more worried about Puig, not only because he injured his throwing (punching?) shoulder in Tuesday night's donnybrook, but also because was out of control during the fight...
IT'S AN OUTRAGE
The Dodgers are still upset with the Diamondbacks after their benches-clearing brawl. They still feel like some codes were violated.

Things could get ugly soon in this Dodgers- Arizona Diamondbacks game as the LA’s new superstar, Yasiel Puig, was drilled in the face by a 92 mph pitch by Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Ian Kennedy.
