SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Dodgers slugger Matt Kemp has confronted San Diego's Carlos Quentin as they were leaving Petco Park after the teams had a bench-clearing brawl that left Los Angeles pitcher Zack Greinke with a broken collarbone.

Kemp asked Quentin why he charged Greinke after getting hit by a pitch Thursday night. Kemp walked up to Quentin near the players' exit and the two went nose-to-nose. Padres pitcher Clayton Richard separated them, and security and police quickly broke it up.

Kemp, Quentin, Greinke and Jerry Hairston Jr. were ejected following a sixth-inning fight during Los Angeles' 3-2 victory. Suspensions are sure to follow.

Kemp was especially livid on the field after the teams were separated.

In the first inning, Padres starter Jason Marquis threw a high-and-tight pitch to Kemp that forced him to jackknife out of the way.
