Quentin, fans react to Padres brawl with Dodgers

Quentin, fans react to Padres brawl with Dodgers

fox5sandiego.com

[trib_ndn vid=24733997]SAN DIEGO — A new series is underway between the Padres and Rockies, but fans are still talking about the Thursday night brawl.

Both benches were cleared during the sixth inning when Dodger’s pitcher Zack Greinke struck Carlos Quentin in the left shoulder.

RAW: Padres, Dodgers Brawl After Batter’s Hit By Pitch“I knew as soon as he got hit,” said Cris Granid, Padres fan. “I was like, oh boy, here it goes.”

The fight lasted several minutes. Quentin, Greinke and two other Dodgers were ejected from the game.

“Those things are never necessary,” said William Downey, Padres fan. “But emotions get going and these guys are excellent ballplayers and they fight for their teams and sometimes they do things they probably regret.”

Major League Baseball issued Quentin an eight game suspension, which he plans to appeal. Friday he reminded reporters this isn’t the first time he’s been hit with a Greinke pitch.

“I’ve never gone out there…

Padres, Dodgers brawl in sixth

Padres, Dodgers brawl in sixth

fox5sandiego.com

[trib_ndn vid=24731784]SAN DIEGO – That was a brawl that seemed to come out of nowhere, although it might have serious, lasting repercussions for the Dodgers.

RAW: Padres, Dodgers Brawl After Batter’s Hit By PitchZack Greinke, the Dodgers’ $147-million starting pitcher, left Thursday’s game after the ruckus in the bottom of the sixth inning, and at first it was unclear if he was injured or simply had been ejected.

The brouhaha started in the bottom of the sixth when Padres left fielder Carlos Quentin was hit by a Greinke pitch on the left shoulder.

Quentin, who has been hit by a pitch 116 times in his career, including once when playing for the White Sox and Greinke was with the Royals, apparently thought it was intentional. That’s despite it coming on a 3-2 pitch in a game the Dodgers were leading 2-1. It was four years ago when Greinke hit Quentin, who had to be restrained from charging…

In more newsy news

San Diego City Council is meeting today and on the agenda …

A modified agreement with the Tourism Marketing District or TMD and a mellower immigration reform referendum.

The TMD deal hit the spotlight when Mayor Filner refused to sign the agreement unless the contract was changed. After lots of political infighting some changes were made and it looks like the agreement will go though.

Last week some on the City Council tried to pass the immigration reform referendum but others on the council didn’t like the language. So some changes were made and it is back in chamber today too.

And in court today

The arraignment for the Marine accused of murdering a Navy veteran and leaving his body tucked in a sleeping bag in the back seat of an SUV parked near a grocery store.

And sentencing for Jesus Arteaga Garcia for the murder of his pregnant estranged wife in front of her 4 and 6 year-old children
