One-year anniversary of Diamondbacks-Dodgers brawl: By The Numbers
After all, it changed the entire complexion of the National League West race in 2013.
Here's a look back at the fateful brawl by the numbers:
Four players were plunked during the two innings of chaos: Cody Ross and Yasiel Puig in the sixth inning and Miguel Montero and Zack Greinke in the seventh inning.
The benches cleared after both instances in the seventh.
Eric Hinske was one of two Arizona players suspended in the aftermath of the fracas. His penalty spawned the short-lived 'Free Hinske' campaign from sympathetic fans, but Major League Baseball did not reduce the suspension.
The D-backs ultimately did free Hinske, though. The veteran infielder and outfielder was designated for assignment 17 days after the brawl.
Not only did the D-backs fall to the Dodgers that night, but they proceeded to nose dive throughout the rest of the campaign. A first-place team at the time, Arizona closed its season seven games below .500 with a 45-52 record.
Kennedy was the principal figure in the brawl, after all his bean balls in the sixth and seventh innings set off the fireworks at Dodger Stadium. For nailing Puig and Greinke respectively, Kennedy received a 10-game ban -- the longest non-drug suspension levied by the league since May 2006.
After returning from his extended hiatus, Kennedy made eight more starts with the D-backs before being shipped to San Diego in a deadline deal.
In all, five players (Hinske, Kennedy, J.P Howell, Ronald Belisario and Skip Schumaker) and three coaches (Don Mattingly, Kirk Gibson and Mark McGwire) were suspended for a total 24 games.
Of those 24 games, 16 were served by members of the D-backs.
Heading into their June 11th contest with the D-backs, the Dodgers were sitting in the cellar of the division (8.5 games back). Propelled by a three-run eighth off reliever David Hernandez, Los Angeles not only took the testy affair but 64 of its final 100 games.
The Dodgers finished 2013 with an 11-game cushion in the division and managed to make it all the way to the National League Championship Series.
Since his infamous encounter with Kennedy back on June 11, 2013, Greinke has compiled a 20-5 record -- best winning percentage of any NL pitcher with at least 20 starts in the last calendar year.
Ninety games after their dust up with Arizona, Los Angeles got revenge, clinching the NL West title with a 7-6 win on Sept. 19 at Chase Field.
Of course that afternoon wasn't remembered for what happened between the white lines, but instead by what happened outside of them. After winning the division, several Dodger players celebrated by taking a dip in the pool beyond the right centerfield wall.
In the 10 games that have been played between the two sides in the City of Angels since the brawl, the D-backs have managed to win just three times (.300 winning percentage).
