San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - Juan Uribe smacked a go-ahead, pinch-hit solo homer in the eighth inning to give the Los Angeles Dodgers a hard-fought 3-2 victory over the San Diego Padres on Thursday in the rubber match of a three- game set.
Adrian Gonzalez added a two-run home run and A.J. Ellis went 3-for-4 for the Dodgers.
The news got much worse Los Angeles after starter Zack Greinke, who left the game in the sixth inning after a bench-clearing brawl, was revealed to have a fractured left collarbone.
The righty pitcher collided with San Diego's Carlos Quentin following the hit- by-pitch on Quentin's upper back. Both clubs were involved in a tussle which resulted in a handful of players being ejected.
Greinke gave up two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out four batters over five-plus innings.
Matt Guerrier (1-0) faced just one batter but picked up the win, while Kenley Jansen tossed a perfect ninth to secure the victory and earn his first save of the season.
Yonder Alonso had two hits and drove in one run for the Padres, who saw starter Jason Marquis last five innings and allow two runs on seven hits while walking four and striking out five. Luke Gregerson (1-1) picked up the loss after giving up Uribe's solo home run.
