The Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks got into a wild brawl in the bottom of the seventh inning during the Dodgers’ 5-3 win Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium.

The second bench-clearing incident, sparked when pitcher Zack Greinke was hit by an Ian Kennedy pitch in the left shoulder, turned ugly, with the teams forming a scrum near the Arizona on-deck circle. Several punches were thrown, and Dodgers reliever J.P. Howell slammed Arizona coach Turner Ward into the railing of the camera well.

The Dodgers were upset that phenom Yasiel Puighad been hit in the nose by a 92-mph pitch in the sixth inning. Puig stayed in the game, and in the top of the seventh inning, Greinke hit Arizona catcher Miguel Montero in the back with a pitch.

“If you can’t pitch inside without hitting somebody in the head, then you shouldn’t pitch inside,” Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. “So, [Puig] gets hit in the face, Montero gets hit in the back, it’s over. It continued on. Talk is cheap. It doesn’t matter. It’s a good win for us.”

Three Dodgers (Puig, Ronald Belisario and hitting coach Mark McGwire) were ejected, as were three Diamondbacks (Kennedy, manager Kirk Gibson and Ward).
