D-backs and Dodgers engage in heated brawl

Tempers flared Tuesday between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Dodgers.

The benches cleared twice between the two bitter divisional rivals, and things got physical the second time around.

It all started when Ian Kennedy hit rookie phenom Yasiel Puig in the bottom of the sixth inning. The pitch appeared to graze Puig's nose, and he fell to the ground and was attended to by Dodgers trainers.

Zach Greinke retaliated in the top of the seventh when he hit Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero. The benches cleared, but no punches were thrown. Both benches were then warned.

In the bottom half of the inning Kennedy threw high at Greinke, causing the benches to clear again. Kennedy was thrown out of the game along with manager Kirk Gibson and coach Turner Ward. From the Dodgers Puig and hitting coach Mark McGwire were tossed.

At one point Gibson and McGwire were in each other's faces yelling at each other. D-backs coach Matt Williams also found himself in the middle of the ruckus with Dodgers manager Don Mattingly and then McGwire.

Then there is coach Turner Ward getting thrown into the railing.

And of course, Dodgers skipper Don Mattingly threw D-backs bench coach Alan Trammell to the ground.
