The Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Diego Padres had a heated affair last night in California after Carlos Quentin took exception to being plunked by Dodgers hurler Zack Greinke. Quentin charged the mound in the 6th inning after being struck in the left shoulder on a full count pitch while the Padres trailed the Dodgers 2-1 on the score board. That was the third time in his career that Greinke has beaned the Padres slugger.
Quentin charged at Greinke who in turn threw down his glove and dropped his shoulder to absorb the charge from Quentin before both players fell to the ground in the melee.
The incident appeared to be resolved with calmer heads eventually prevailing until Jerry Hairston came running back onto the field which ignited the benches to clear once again. Dodgers Matt Kemp was irate throughout the entire ordeal swearing at Padres players until finally restrained by Josh Beckett. Kemp had been thrown at earlier in the contest narrowly missing his head.
