What would a Zach Greinke start be for the Los Angeles Dodgers without a few hit batters and a brawl?  But this time it wasn’t him instigating.  Last night’s starting pitcher for the Arizona Diamondbacks Ian Kennedy,  has actually hit more batters than anyone (22) since the start of the 2012 season.  And last night was no different. Check out the videos of what happened after the jump. Here’s the recap the events leading up to the brawl: Superstar rookie Yasiel Puig was hit in the face by a Kennedy fastball in the 6th inning (and miraculously stayed in the game) In the Top of the 7th inning, Greinke hits Miguel Montero to retaliate. In the Top of the 7th inning, all hell breaks loose when Kennedy smokes Greinke in the head with a fastball The post VIDEO: Zack Greinke Was At It Again Last Night; Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks Brawl appeared first on Total Sports Blog.

Ex-Pitcher Is No Fan of Zack Greinke

It's not surprising that in the middle of the epic, WWE-style fracas between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks Tuesday night was Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke. Sure, it was Greinke getting hit in the head by Ian Kennedy that started the melee, but given dude's track record (the Dodgers starter had already hit two batters earlier in the game and ignited a...

A Brief And Obvious Point (and Questions) about Dodgers v. DBacks and Zack Greinke

Not His Year "If he doesn't do that, he loses a lot of respect in the clubhouse. It's more dangerous for him not to do that than to do that." - Dodgers manager Don Mattingly, about starting pitcher Zack Greinke hitting Miguel Montero in retaliation for DBack pitcher Ian Kennedy hitting Yusiel Puig Um, Don?  I realize it's been a long season, and you are...

Benches Clear Again After Ian Kennedy Nails Zach Greinke

  credited to West Coast baseball, you got to love it.  Too bad folks out east aren’t awake to witness physical type baseball.  They only here about stories the next morning.  Anytime Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher, Zach Greinke is on the mound watch out.  This is the second time he and his team were involved in a bases clearing brawl.  Luckily he wasn’t...

Video: Dodgers and Diamondbacks get into bench clearing brawl

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks broke into a bench-clearing brawl on Tuesday, and once again Zack Greinke was at the center of the mayhem.

The Brawl at Chavez Ravine was stupid for multiple reasons, but hey, at least it was GIFtastic

Well, that escalated quickly. It all started when Yasiel Puig got hit in the face by a 92 mph Ian Kennedy fastball. Zack Greinke then followed that up the next inning by hitting Miguel Montero in the back. Now, personally, if I was Zack Greinke, I wouldn’t have hit Miguel Montero. I don’t really believe Ian Kennedy hit Yasiel Puig intentionally, and I don’t really believe...

Los Angeles Dodgers still upset at Arizona Diamondbacks after brawl

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks got into a bean-ball war on Tuesday night, and that led to two benches-clearing standoffs, one of which turned into a brawl. Any hopes that cooler heads would prevail after a day have gone right out the window. The Dodgers are still upset about the fight, as they feel Diamondbacks pitcher Ian Kennedy intentionally threw at the heads...

Dodgers and DBacks brawl after pointless plunkings

Tuesday night, we got another dose of stupid, dangerous behavior from grown men who should know better. In the top of the fifth inning, Zack Greinke hit Cody Ross, and things increasingly spun out of control from there. In the bottom of the sixth, recent call up and phenom Yasiel Puig was hit in the face by Ian Kennedy. I’m not sure if it was intentional, and since hitting someone...

Ian Kennedy, Zack Greinke, and the probabilistic approach to determining intention.

Puig's rage in brawl a bad sign?

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...

Dodgers still mad after brawl with Diamondbacks

The Dodgers are still upset a day after their brawl with the Arizona Diamondbacks, with much of their ire directed toward pitcher Ian Kennedy. Kennedy hit Los Angeles rookie Yasiel Puig and pitcher Zack Greinke with high pitches, and a day later the Dodgers were still taking exception to where they were thrown. Los Angeles manager Don Mattingly says he doesn't think Kennedy...

Bench clearing brawl between Arizona Diamondbacks & LA Dodgers

The Dodgers and the Diamondbacks had a mini brawl on Tuesday night. The meleé was a result of two  Dodgers players being hit with pitches. Rookie,  Yasiel Puig was at bat when he was hit in the face with a pitch during the sixth inning by Ian Kennedy. Later, starter Zack Greinke was hit with a high pitch.

The games will be played at the Sydney Cricket Ground next March 22nd and 23rd.

Take Me Out To The Brawl Game: Mets’ Greatest Hits

One of my fellow writers on MMO sent me a video link to the Ian Kennedy plunked his L.A. counterpart, Zack Greinke, with a high-and-tight pitch. The Dodgers’ pitcher, who fractured his collarbone in a brawl with the Padres earlier this season, was the third player hit in the tense NL West tilt. That 92-mph fastball at Greinke’s head proved to be the final straw.”>D’Backs...
