Dodgers Win Game, Lose Greinke


Posted Apr 12, 2013


Juan Uribe played hero by belting the game-winning home run, but Dodger fans aren't cheering knowing that Zack Greinke will miss significant time with a fractured collarbone.

Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke broke his left collarbone in a bench-clearing brawl with the San Diego Padres during Los Angeles' 3-2 victory Thursday night. Juan Uribe's pinch-hit home run in the eighth put the Dodgers ahead, two innings after

Greinke hit Carlos Quentin on the left shoulder with a pitch. The slugger started walking toward the mound and Greinke appeared to say something. Quentin then charged the 2009 AL Cy Young Award winner. They dropped their shoulders and collided, and Quentin tackled the pitcher to the grass. Quentin and Greinke ended up at the bottom of a huge scrum as players from both sides ran onto the field and jumped in.

When they were finally pulled apart, Quentin was led off the field by teammate Mark Kotsay. Greinke walked off toward the Dodgers' dugout, his uniform top disheveled after it had been pulled over his head by Quentin.
