Carlos Quentin Charges Mound, Zack Greinke Breaks His Collarbone – VIDEO
San Diego Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin charged the mound, after being hit by a pitch by Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke, on Thursday night, leading to a bench-clearing brawl, and and injury to Greinke, that will likely keep him out of action for some time.
Greinke, who signed a six-year, $147 million contract with the Dodgers during the offseason, suffered a broken collarbone, and will likely miss around six weeks of action.
Dodgers’ manager Don Mattingly was understandably not happy afterward, saying that Quentin “should not play a game until Greinke can pitch. If he plays before Greinke, something is wrong. Nothing happens if that guy goes to first base.”
The Dodgers went on to win, 3-2, but at the time, the Dodgers were leading, 2-1, and there a full count on Quentin.
There was an incident earlier in the game, as Matt Kemp was upset about an 0-2 pitch that was thrown near his head by Padres’ starter Jason Marquis.
