Puig came into the game batting .500 just 1 weeks into his major league career.
LOS ANGELES (AP) The Dodgers remained upset Wednesday about their brawl with the Arizona Diamondbacks, and much of their ire was directed toward pitcher Ian Kennedy.
Puig was scratched Wednesday night with a strained right shoulder, although the Dodgers didn't immediately explain how he was hurt. He Nike Zoom Elite 8 Black
Arizona catcher Miguel Montero had a different view.
"We both went at it, and it was kind of fun," he said.
Baylor, Williams and Trammell declined to talk to reporters Wednesday.
"The only way you can get the kid out right now is to throw him inside, and that's how we got him out the first two times up," Arizona infielder Willie Bloomquist said. "To say we were trying to hit him, that's crazy. We're certainly not trying to hit a kid in the face."
"Do I think Kennedy hit Puig on purpose? No," Kershaw said, "but the fact that he's a professional pitcher and he's throwing at faces. Then to do it again in Zack's face, there's no place for that. If you can't throw inside, don't go there."
"It Nike Lebron New was a good one, huh? These guys are tough," said Montero, who got hit in the back by a pitch from Greinke. "Those coaches are tough. Old school right there, I guess. There's a lot of power there."
"Anything like that is going to leave a lot of taste in people's mouths," manager Don Mattingly said.

to be announced until at least Thursday. Both teams are off that day. The Dodgers open a nine game road trip in Pittsburgh on Friday, while the Diamondbacks play the first of three games at San Diego.
Also getting in their licks were several coaches who dominated baseball as players in the 1980s and '90s.

Dodgers Still Angry Following Baseball Brawl
"We had some guys on our team get heated and overreacted," Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw said.
"One thing we've learned from Yasiel is there's no half speed," Mattingly said. "It's fast, hard and all the time, so I'm really not surprised."
"The second ball is no doubt intentional," Mattingly said. "That's two balls thrown last night that could have ended guys' careers."
Don Baylor, Mattingly's former New York Yankees teammate and currently Arizona's hitting coach, held his ground among a surge of Dodgers. Mattingly wrestled with Arizona bench coach Alan Trammell Nike Lebron 12 Low Wolf Grey
as he tried to get at Gibson. Williams had Mattingly in a not so friendly bear hug at one point.
It was the second ugly fight the Dodgers have been involved in this season. Greinke spent more than a month on the disabled list after breaking his collarbone in a brawl with Carlos Quentin after hitting the Padres outfielder with a pitch on April 11.
Kennedy hit Los Angeles rookie Yasiel Puig and pitcher Zack Greinke with high pitches Tuesday night, and a day later the Dodgers were still taking exception to where they were thrown.
Mattingly and Kershaw thought the beaning should have stopped after Puig and Montero got hit, with each team having struck someone. Five players in all were hit, including Arizona's Cody Ross and Mark Ellis of the Dodgers.
"That's not our intent," he said.
"I don't get like that very often," Mattingly said. "I didn't really know that was Tram. I had someone on me. If I see Tram out there (before the game) I would definitely apologize. I like Tram a lot."
Arizona manager Kirk Gibson repeated his earlier denial that Kennedy was head hunting Greinke.
Mattingly said he doesn't think Kennedy hit Puig deliberately. The ball deflected off the young slugger's shoulder and grazed his nose.
The teams met in the series finale on Wednesday night, one night after their nasty fight led to six ejections, including Kennedy, Puig and Gibson.
Gibson agreed, saying, "We found a little hole up and in. Ian's trying to go back in there and the ball got away. You never, ever want to try and hit anybody close to the eye."
