Zack Greinke paid a severe price for standing up to Carlos Quentin on Thursday.
The Dodgers revealed after their 3-2 win over the San Diego Padres that Greinke suffered a broken left collarbone during his fight with Quentin that resulted in a bench-clearing brawl.
Greinke hit Quentin with a pitch in the sixth inning, and the Padres outfielder charged the mound. Greinke dipped his shoulder down to brace for contact, which might have been when he got injured. The two ended up on the ground and a pile formed on top of them.
Dodgers manager Don Mattingly was fuming about the situation after the game and thinks just punishment would be for Quentin to be kept out until Greinke returns.
“I don’t understand it either,” said Mattingly. “We’re in a 2-1 game, and a 3-2 pitch, a guy that set a record for the Padres for getting hit, a guy that basically dives into the plate. In a 2-1 game we’re trying to hit him 3-2? It’s just stupid is what it is.
