Mattingly believed otherwise, using an expletive to express his disagreement.
After the game, Greinke said he didn’t want to discuss the brawl.
"That’s when it kind of got out of hand," Tim Federowicz said about Greinke getting hit. "You can’t do that."
Kennedy immediately was tossed and calmly walked toward the Diamondbacks dugout before players poured onto the field and relievers ran in from the bullpens.

Belisario began throwing punches and a shouting Puig rushed into the melee.
"I was out of my mind just trying to protect my teammates," Belisario said. "If you want to hit somebody, don’t hit a pitcher. Don’t hit guys in the head. That’s crazy."
Third base umpire Larry Vanover said Puig and McGwire were ejected for "instigating," while Belisario was deemed to be "out of control."
"That doesn’t mean that other people won’t get fined," Gorman said. "The league will look at video."
