Padres’ Quentin Suspended After Brawl: Dodgers lose Zack Greinke for 8 weeks

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: Carlos Quentin suspended for eight games. Injury to Zack Greinke will require surgery to insert a rod into his clavicle.

A brawl between the Dodgers and Padres left high-priced pitcher Zack Greinke with a broken left collarbone.
 
Greinke, who signed a $147 million, six-year contract with Los Angeles last winter, was injured in a fight with San Diego slugger Carlos Quentin.
 
Quentin charged the mound after being hit by a pitch from Greinke, the 2009 AL Cy Young Award winner. Both benches emptied and a scrum ensued around the mound.

After the game, Dodgers slugger Matt Kemp confronted San Diego's Carlos Quentin as they were leaving Petco Park. 
 
Kemp asked Quentin why he charged Greinke after getting hit by a pitch Thursday night. Kemp walked up to Quentin near the players' exit and the two went nose-to-nose.  Padres pitcher Clayton Richard separated them, and security and police quickly broke it up.
