Multiple beanings and bench clearing + a brawl in LA last night…and it was fantastic

In case you missed it last night, Zack Greinke induced a brawl for the second time this season…this time because he was drilled. It was the fourth hit by pitch of the game that finally did the trick. Diamondbacks pitcher Ian Kennedy hit Greinke in the head an inning after Greinke hit Arizona catcher Miguel Montero in the back, which was retaliation for Yasiel Puig getting hit in the face in the sixth, which was, of course, retaliation of Greinke hitting Cody Ross. The first two seemed accidental, the later two were certainly intentional…and it is very taboo to bean a pitcher (unless he hit the pitcher earlier) – especially up near the head. Then, all hell broke loose, which you can see here:

The benches also cleared after Greinke hit Montero.

It was curious why Greinke came up to hit in the first place especially since he did not come back out for the next inning. After he was beaned, he also slid hard into second base, breaking up a double play pissing off shortstop Didi Gregorious on what was a pretty normal hard slid for the situation.

The brawl featured some legends such as Mark McGwire, Don Mattingly, Matt Williams, Don Baylor and Charles Nagy.

Kennedy, Gibson and Puig were ejected. Kennedy is a lock for a suspension after making that throw, and MLB should ensure that it’s a good one for going at a guy’s head, although pitchers are never suspended for more than one start for on-field incidents. Greinke could also be due for a suspension for his intentional plunking of Montero, even if he wasn’t thrown out. Puig could also get suspended for 2-5 games based on his actions as one of the instigators in the scrum. Dodgers relievers J.P. Howell and Ronald Belisario also made themselves front and center in the mix and should be looking at bans. It’s also probably safe to say Gibson and McGwire are looking at one-or two-game suspensions as well. Mattingly, for what it’s worth, was not ejected from the game.
