Dodgers seeking revenge against Diamondbacks' Ian Kennedy

Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Ian Kennedy might want to be cautious the next time he faces the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Dodgers are upset after Kennedy set off a benches-clearing brawl during last night's 5-3 loss after he hit Dodgers rightfielder Yasiel Puig in the face in the sixth inning.

That came on a 1-2 count with one out and the bases empty and Arizona leading 2-0. Puig stayed in the game and then Andre Ethier followed with a game-tying home run.

Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero was hit between the numbers by a Zack Greinke fastball on a 2-1 count. That resulted in the benches clearing but no actual fighting.

Greinke was then hit in the left shoulder by the first pitch he saw from Kennedy in the bottom of the seventh, a fastball headed straight for his head.

“You hit our guy, we hit yours, that's the way it should be,” Dodgers catcher Tim Federowicz said to the Los Angeles Times. “But [Kennedy] took it another level, so we'll see him next time. I hope we face him next time.”

“It's different if it's a beanball war,” Dodgers utility man Skip Schumaker said. “I've been a part of those before. I get it. It's a part of the game. I liked it. It gets guys going. It gets the fans fired up. I get all that. I love it. But when you start throwing at guys' heads, it's a different story.”
