The Dodgers and Padres didn’t just fight on the field Thursday, they also had some words after the game ended.
Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp, who was ejected for his role in the benches-clearing brawl, got into it with Carlos Quentin after the game. The confrontation reportedly occurred by the tunnel outside the locker rooms.
The Mighty 1090′s Marty Caswell says the two were nose-to-nose before being separated by San Diego pitcher Clayton Richard (pictured). Their words were not pleasant.
According to the Los Angeles Times’ Dylan Hernandez, at one point Kemp said to Quentin, “We’ll see, bitch.”
Kemp was asked by reporters about the implications of the brawl between the teams.
“Will there be bad blood between these two teams? I don’t know,” said Kemp.
He also had harsh words for Quentin.
“I think Carlos Quentin went to Stanford…I heard there’s some smart people at Stanford. That wasn’t too smart,” he said of the slugger’s decision to charge the mound on Zack Greinke, per U-T San Diego’s Dennis Lin.
Yeah, I can only imagine what it will look like the next time these teams play. We’ll set the over/under line at two batters plunked.
One thing that must not go overlooked is that the Matt Kemp memes were STRONG after the game. Take a look:
