Kemp and Quentin go at it after Brawl

Published On April 12, 2013 | By Jill Saftel

Following Thursday night’s brawl, Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp was out for vengeance when he confronted Carlos Quentin from the Padres in the tunnel at Petco Park on Thursday Night.

Kemp was furious that his teammate Zack Grienke suffered a fractured collarbone after getting involved with Quentin during the game. Quentin ran to the mound and wrestled with Grienke after he was hit by a pitch. In typical fashion, teammates got involved, and the brawl ensued.

Los Angeles Times reporter Dylan Hernandez tweeted that after the face-to-face confrontation, Kemp told Quentin, “We’ll see, b—-h.” Those sound like some serious fighting words.

Police eventually had to separated the two, although the bad blood is far from over. The Dodgers and Padres will meet again for a three-game series beginning on Monday in Los Angeles.

Kemp still seemed pretty heated after the game.

“I think Carlos Quentin went to Stanford, something like that?” Kemp told reporters after the game. “I heard there’s smart people at Stanford. That wasn’t too smart. Greinke didn’t do anything wrong. That stuff happens in the Minor Leagues. It doesn’t happen in the big leagues.”
