Bench-clearing brawl between Padres and Dodgers

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Padres slugger Carlos Quentin has rushed the mound and wrestled Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke to the ground after getting hit by a pitch, leading to a bench-clearing brawl between the teams.
    
After he was plunked on the left shoulder Thursday night, 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 wrestled the pitcher to the ground. Both ended up on the bottom of a huge scrum.
    
Quentin was led off the field by teammate Mark Kotsay. Greinke walked off toward the Dodgers' dugout.
    
After the teams started going back to the dugouts and bullpens, Jerry Hairston Jr. came running across the field yelling and pointing at someone in the Padres' dugout and had to be restrained. Matt Kemp also was especially angry.
