Dodgers, Padres Brawl: Los Angeles Uses Ron Burgandy To Fire Back at San Diego

The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres had a little spat on the baseball diamond Thursday night when Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke nailed Padres left fielder Carlos Quentin with a pitch. Quentin then charged the mound and drove through Greinke before a bench clearing fight took place.

Greinke ended up with a broken collarbone, Quentin turned into public enemy number one, and both sides were left with a sour taste in their mouths.

After the game, Quentin and Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp went at it in the locker room, but that wasn’t where it ended. Thanks to the wonderful world of social media, the Dodgers went to their Twitter account for one final parting blow — and it was a great one.

Here was the Dodgers farewell message after the game:

It doesn’t get much better than that. Well done, Los Angeles. Well done.
