LOS ANGELES (CBSDFW.COM/AP) – Ian Kennedy hit Yasiel Puig and Zack Greinke with high pitches, sparking a heated brawl that involved players and coaches and resulted in six ejections in a game in which the Los Angeles Dodgers rallied to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-3 Tuesday night.

Kennedy, Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson and coach Turner Ward, along with Puig, reliever Ronald Belisario and Dodgers hitting coach Mark McGwire were ejected in the seventh inning after the prolonged scuffle that nearly spilled into the stands.

Greinke, who fractured his collarbone in a brawl with the Padres earlier this season, was the third player hit in the tense NL West tilt. That 92-mph fastball at Greinke’s head proved to be the final straw.

In the top of the seventh, Greinke hit Diamondbacks catcher Miguel Montero in the back and both teams came charging onto the field, but the scrum broke up quickly with no punches thrown.

That was payback for Kennedy hitting Puig in bottom of the sixth — the ball deflected off Puig’s shoulder clipped his nose.
