Dodgers' Zack Greinke Suffers Broken Left Collarbone In Brawl

Harry How/Getty Images(SAN DIEGO) --  Dodgers Pitcher Jack Greinke broke his left collarbone in a bench-clearing brawl with the San Diego Padres on Thursday night during a 3-2 win.

Greinke hit Quentin in the shoulder on a 3-2 pitch in the sixth inning.  Quentin proceeded to charge the mound as both benches emptied.  Both men lowered their shoulders and collided, which is where Greinke is believed to have broken his collarbone.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly was furious after the game, saying the incident shouldn't have happened because Quentin was hit on a 3-2 pitch in a one-run game.

"That's just stupid is what it is," Mattingly said. "He should not play a game until Greinke can pitch. If he plays before Greinke pitches, something's wrong. He caused the whole thing. Nothing happens if he goes to first base."

Greinke and Quentin were ejected on the spot.  Matt Kemp was also ejected following the fight.  He and Quentin exchanged words while leaving Petco Park after the game.

Juan Uribe hit a pinch-hit solo home run in the eighth inning to break a 2-2 tie and help the Dodgers (6-3) escape with the win.

Greinke signed a six-year $147 million contract with the Dodgers in December.
