Don’t dig in tonight, Carlos Quentin

There was no immediate retaliation visited upon Carlos Quentin after he charged the mound and broke Zack Geinke’s collarbone. But Jeff Passan notes that, at the time, the Dodgers were saying that his time was going to come, with one unnamed Dodger telling Passan:

“We will get him,” he said. “It may not be next time we see him. It may not be the time after that. It may not be two times after that. But we will get him. I promise.”

The Dodgers meet the Padres tonight, kicking off a three-game set. Greinke won’t be going in the series so there won’t be a chance of direct retribution, but it wouldn’t be shocking if someone threw a ball at Quentin.

It’ll be awesome when it happens and the Dodgers pitcher says it just slipped out of his hand or Don Mattingly talks about how “you never want to hit a guy in that situation.”

Wednesday night’s game at PNC Park between the Brewers and Pirates has been postponed, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. No makeup date has been announced yet. As Brink points out, the two clubs meet again in Pittsburgh September 21-23 and both have an off day on the 20th, so that could be a potential makeup date.

Brent Suter and Chad Kuhl were scheduled to square off on the mound. Their starts will likely be pushed back to Thursday. The Pirates will host the Diamondbacks and the Brewers will host the Cardinals.

The Cubs won on Wednesday afternoon, so the Brewers are tied with the Cubs for first place in the NL Central. The Pirates are seven games back in third place.
