Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin on Friday was ordered suspended for eight games by the commissioner's office for his actions in the brawl Thursday at Petco Park after Quentin was hit by by a pitch thrown by Dodger pitcher Zack Greinke. Quentin Friday immediately appealed his suspension. The only Dodger to draw a suspension was utilityman Jerry Hairston, Jr. who was hit with a one-game ban. Hairston also is appealing. The two other players ejected from the game, Greinke and Matt Kemp were not suspended.
Greinke, who suffered a broken left collarbone in the brawl, was placed on the 15-day disabled list and was scheduled to have an operation on his left, non-throwing shoulder that was expected to sideline him for eight weeks. L-A manager Don Mattingly said his team would not retaliate. "We're going to play baseball," Mattingly said. "We're trying to win games. We're not MMA fighters."
