SAN DIEGO — Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke broke his left collarbone in a bench-clearing brawl with the San Diego Padres during Los Angeles’ 3-2 win.

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.

Dodgers slugger Matt Kemp, ejected following the fight, confronted Quentin as they were leaving after the game. The two went nose-to-nose before Padres pitcher Clayton Richard stepped between them.
