The news got much worse Los Angeles after starter Zack Greinke, who left
the game in the sixth inning after a bench-clearing brawl, was revealed to
have a fractured left collarbone.
The righty pitcher collided with San Diego's Carlos Quentin following the hit-
by-pitch on Quentin's upper back. Both clubs were involved in a tussle which
resulted in a handful of players being ejected.
Greinke gave up two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out four
batters over five-plus innings.
"I never hit him on purpose," Greinke said after the game." He always seems to
think I'm hitting him on purpose, but that's not the case."
Matt Guerrier (1-0) faced just one batter but picked up the win, while Kenley
Jansen tossed a perfect ninth to secure the victory and earn his first save of
Yonder Alonso had two hits and drove in one run for the Padres, who saw
starter Jason Marquis last five innings and allow two runs on seven
hits while walking four and striking out five. Luke Gregerson (1-1) picked up
the loss after giving up Uribe's blast.
With the game tied 2-2 in the eighth, Uribe pinch-hit for Guerrier and came up
huge with a solo shot that landed just over the right-field wall on a
full count offering to make it 3-2.
With the Padres trailing 2-1 in the sixth, a bench-clearing brawl broke out as
a result of Quentin getting hit by Greinke. After a delay of 10-plus minutes,
"It's an unfortunate situation," Quentin said after the game. "Myself and
Greinke have a history that dates back a few years."
The brawl added some spark, as Chris Capuano, who replaced Greinke, threw a
wild pitch. The next batter, Alonso, lined a shot into center, scoring Alexi
Amarista, who replaced Quentin, to make it 2-2.
With two outs in the first inning, Gonzalez crushed a 2-0 pitch over the
right-field wall, plating Carl Crawford, who singled to lead off the game. It
was Gonzalez's first homer of the year and first in 71 appearances at the
plate dating back to last season.
San Diego rallied with two down in the fourth to make it a 2-1 game as Jedd
Gyorko walked and advanced to third on a single before scoring easily on a
wild pitch from Greinke.
Greinke reached 1,500 career innings pitched ... Los Angeles outfielder Andre
Either went 1-for-4 to extend his hitting streak to 11 games.
