San Diego Padres' Carlos Quentin and teammates battle the Los Angeles Dodgers after Quentin was hit by a pitch thrown by Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke in San Diego on Thursday..

 

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Padres slugger Carlos Quentin rushed the mound and wrestled Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke to the ground after getting hit by a pitch Thursday night, leading to a bench-clearing brawl between the teams that left Greinke with a broken left collarbone.

The Dodgers went on to win 3-2 after Juan Uribe hit a go-ahead home run in the eighth inning.

But the story was Greinke's injury.

After he was plunked on the left shoulder in the sixth inning, Quentin started walking toward the mound. Greinke appeared to say something and Quentin then charged the 2009 AL Cy Young Award winner.

They dropped their shoulders and collided, and Quentin tackled the pitcher to the grass. Both ended up on the bottom of a huge scrum as players from both sides ran onto the field and jumped in.

When they finally were pulled apart, Quentin was led off the field by teammate Mark Kotsay. Greinke walked off toward the Dodgers' dugout, his uniform top disheveled.
