SAN DIEGO (AP) Padres slugger Carlos Quentin has been suspended eight games and Los Angeles infielder Jerry Hairston Jr. suspended one game by Major League Baseball for their roles in a brawl Thursday night.

Quentin rushed the mound after he was hit in the upper left arm by a pitch from Zack Greinke. The two players lowered their shoulders and Quentin slammed into Greinke, breaking the pitcher’s left collarbone.

Hairston incited a second melee when he ran across the field gesturing at someone in the Padres dugout.

Quentin and Hairston are playing, pending appeal by the players’ association.

No discipline was announced for Greinke or Matt Kemp, both ejected along with Quentin and Hairston.

Greinke is scheduled to have surgery Saturday and miss eight weeks
