Dodgers, Diamondbacks brawl after Yasiel Puig, Zack Greinke hit by pitches
Question of the Day
“That’s when it kind of got out of hand,” Tim Federowicz said about Greinke getting hit. “You can’t do that.”
Kennedy immediately was tossed and calmly walked toward the Diamondbacks dugout before players poured onto the field and relievers ran in from the bullpens.
“Everything happened so fast,” Mattingly said. “It just gets a little crazy out there.”
Belisario began throwing punches and a shouting Puig rushed into the melee.
“I was out of my mind just trying to protect my teammates,” Belisario said. “If you want to hit somebody, don’t hit a pitcher. Don’t hit guys in the head. That’s crazy.”
“That doesn’t mean that other people won’t get fined,” Gorman said. “The league will look at video.”
Ward got slammed against a railing and was put in a headlock by Dodgers left fielder Skip Schumaker, who appeared to be trying to break up the fight as both teams kept pushing closer to the stands.
“I’ve never seen a pitcher throw at two guys’ heads before,” Schumaker said. “It’s dangerous.”
“It’s hard not to, when they go after you,” the umpire said. “Pushing and shoving, when it gets over by the dugout in the fan’s area, it gets kind of dangerous. You have the railing there. You can’t go anywhere when you get pushed up against the railing.”
Several star players of another generation were right in the middle of it.
“I know they’re mad. They thought we hit Puig, but certainly we didn’t,” Gibson said. “The guy hits everything out over the plate. But the ball got away from Ian and got inside. It’s as simple as that. I didn’t order anything. It’s certainly not what Ian wanted to do.”
Mattingly had to be restrained as he tried to get at Gibson, then they exchanged words briefly. McGwire and third base coach Matt Williams grabbed each other’s shirts in a tense standoff and shouted at each other.
