LOS ANGELES -- The Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks got into a wild brawl in the bottom of the seventh inning during the Dodgers' 5-3 win Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium.

The second bench-clearing incident, sparked when pitcher Zack Greinke was hit by an Ian Kennedy pitch in the left shoulder, turned ugly, with the teams forming a scrum near the Arizona on-deck circle. Several punches were thrown, and Dodgers reliever J.P. Howell slammed Arizona coach Turner Ward into the railing of the camera well.

The Dodgers were upset that phenom Yasiel Puig had been hit in the nose by a 92-mph pitch in the sixth inning. Puig stayed in the game, and in the top of the seventh inning, Greinke hit Arizona catcher Miguel Montero in the back with a pitch.

I thought it should've ended when Montero was hit, in retaliation for that pitch to Puig in the face. It also looked like Kennedy was staring into the D-backs bench for a little while before he drilled Greinke.

Jeff- that was crazy. I've personally never seen an opposing pitcher intentionally throwing at your pitcher, much less at the head. Serious brain injuries can occur from this non-sense, and Ian "Mr. Headhunter" Kennedy needs to be suspended a long time.

That was just a crazy incident all around Dave. I still think after Montero was thrown at, the incident should've been settled already. Also, Greinke didn't headhunt Montero, unlike what Kennedy did. I think there was an article on ESPN, with a writer saying Kennedy should be suspended 15 games. I still think Kennedy stared into the D-backs bench before he threw at Greinke.

^^Good observation Jeff- that tells me that Kirk Gibson needs to be suspended as well. Ironic that Kirk Gibson is still one of my all time favorite Dodgers, lol. Gibby, Gibby, Gibby- I actually would prefer him as manager over Mattingly.

^I do think Gibson should be suspended as well. I think that may be one of the reasons why some of the Dodgers coaches seemed so irate. Gibby is probably still one of Dodgers' fans favorite players regardless, just for what he did for the team. For me, I always wished the Dodgers had initially hired Mike Sciosia.

Well too bad Gibson only got suspended 1 game- he certain deserved more.

But yeah Jeff I agree Mike Sciosia would have been a nice hire as well. Still a possibility since he might get fired if the Angels don't do better.
