Zach Grineke

Zack Grienke and Carlos Quentin have some history together. Quentin thinks that Greinke likes to hit him on purpose (3 times over last few years), so when he did last night he charged the mound.

Normally, these fights are harmless, but in this case the shoulder block by Quentin caused Greinke to break his collarbone.

Here is what the combatants had to say.

“I never hit him on purpose,” said Greinke, who had his left arm in a sling and appeared shaken after the game. “I never thought about hitting him on purpose. He always seems to think that I’m hitting him on purpose, but that’s not the case. That’s all I can really say about it.”

“That’s just stupid is what it is,” Mattingly said. “He should not play a game until Greinke can pitch. If he plays before Greinke pitches, something’s wrong. He caused the whole thing. Nothing happens if he goes to first base.”

“I’ve been hit by many pitches,” said Quentin, plunked more often than any other major league hitter since the start of 2008. “Some have been intentional, some have not been. For the amount I have been hit and my hitting style, I’m going to repeat: I have never reacted that way.”
