Milwaukee Brewers comment on Arizona Diamondbacks hitting Ryan Braun with a pitch
After the game the two sides had plenty to say. The D-backs defended their actions (or excused them, depending on your perspective), while the Brewers appeared to either not care or just plain mock their opponents.
Here's a sampling of quotes from after the game:
