 SAN DIEGO (AP) - Dodgers slugger Matt Kemp has confronted San Diego's Carlos Quentin as they were leaving Petco Park after the teams had a bench-clearing brawl that left Los Angeles pitcher Zack Greinke with a broken collarbone.
Kemp asked Quentin why he charged Greinke after getting hit by a pitch Thursday night. Kemp walked up to Quentin near the players' exit and the two went nose-to-nose. Padres pitcher Clayton Richard separated them, and security and police quickly broke it up.
Kemp, Quentin and Jerry Hairston Jr. were ejected following a sixth-inning fight during Los Angeles' 3-2 victory. Kemp was especially livid on the field after the teams were separated.
In the first inning, Padres starter Jason Marquis threw a high-and-tight pitch to Kemp that forced him to jackknife out of the way.
