Carlos who? The Dodgers actually won a game, but tonight's game was about fighting.
In the fifth inning, Zack Greinke — it had to be him — nicked Cody Ross with a pitch that was slightly inside. Jason Kubel followed with a homer.
In the sixth, Ian Kennedy came high and inside to Yasiel Puig, who leaned back and got hit in the nose. Amazingly, he stayed in the game, and Andre Ethier followed with a homer.
In the top of the seventh, Greinke hit Miguel Montero on the back. The benches cleared but no punches where thrown.
In the bottom of the seventh, Kennedy came in high and inside to Greinke, who got hit on the shoulder. And it was on. Mattingly took down D'bag bench coach Alan Trammell. Ronald Belisario went apeshit on no one in particular.
In the eighth, reliever Joe Paterson hit Mark Ellis on the leg, but I think everybody was tired of fighting at that point.
In the end, D'bags Kennedy, Kirk Gibson and coach Turner Ward were ejected, and Mark McGwire and Puig were gone for the Dodgers. UPDATE: And Beli!
Oh, and the Dodgers took the lead on Tim Federowicz's bases-clearing double in the eighth. I've never seen Juan Uribe run that fast! And newly minted closer Kenley Jansen pitched a 1-2-3 ninth to close it. It was...different.
