On Thursday night, a brawl interrupted a game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres. It was a nasty affair that started when Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke hit San Diego Padres slugger Carlos Quentin with a pitch. Both teams’ benches cleared, and Greinke, who signed a contract in the offseason worth $147 million, broke his collarbone in the melee. The pair have a history of bad blood, and they reportedly exchanged heated words in the parking lot after the game.

In the wake of the brawl, the L.A. Dodgers Twitter feed issued this tweet:

See you on Monday in Los Angeles: twitter.com/Dodgers/status…

— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) April 12, 2013

The message has more than 2,400 retweets and has been favorited more than 6,000 times.
