Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke has bought a gated home in Studio City for $4.575 million. The Craftsman-style two-structure compound, built last year, features an art studio, a bar, a gym, a library/study, a media room, seven bedrooms, nine full bathrooms and two powder rooms. The more than one acre of grounds includes a nine-car motor court, a swimming pool and a waterfall with a walking bridge. Right-hander Greinke, 29, pitched a shutout against the Pittsburgh Pirates in his season opener for the Dodgers.

San Diego Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin, who broke the collarbone of Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke in an on-field fight Thursday night in San Diego, has been suspended for eight games. Dodgers utility player Jerry Hairston Jr. was suspended for one game. Quentin was suspended for "his actions, which included charging the mound and inciting the bench-clearing incident," according to a statement from Major League Baseball.

Adrian Gonzalez said the Dodgers' 8-7 victory over the Angels on Monday night could change the course of the season. Manager Don Mattingly was also hopeful that would be the case. "That," Mattingly said, "was a good game. " The source of the sudden optimism was the erasing of a 6-1 deficit in the opening game of the Freeway Series at Dodger Stadium, something completely out of character for the last-place Dodgers. Until this night, the largest deficit the Dodgers had overcome on their way to a victory was three runs.

That was a brawl that seemed to come out of nowhere, although it might have serious, lasting repercussions for the Dodgers. Zack Greinke, the Dodgers' $147-million starting pitcher, left Thursday's game after the ruckus in the bottom of the sixth inning, and at first it was unclear if he was injured or simply had been ejected. The brouhaha started in the bottom of the sixth when Padres left fielder Carlos Quentin was hit by a Greinke pitch on the left shoulder. Quentin, who has been hit by a pitch 116 times in his career, including once when playing for the White Sox and Greinke was with the Royals, apparently thought it was intentional.

SAN DIEGO--What Carlos Quentin did to derail the Dodgers' season is pretty ugly. What he did to the derail the San Diego Padres' season might be worse. When Quentin threw Zack Greinke to the ground and broke his collarbone, the slugger said he was settling a score from years before he ever joined the Padres. Quentin appears satisfied, no matter how much pain he inflicted on the team that made him its highest-paid player, a team that had absolutely no quarrel with Greinke. PHOTOS: Dodgers vs. Padres The Padres need Quentin now, and desperately.

PHOENIX - His face is shadowed under an oversized baseball cap. His gaze is often averted to the ceiling or floor. His handshake is distant, his voice is small, his sentences trail off into awkward silence. The first impression of Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke is that, despite having just signed a $147-million deal with a team in baseball's second-largest market, he simply wants to run away and hide. It is a daily act of courage that he does not. "I didn't think there was anything wrong with me," he said Friday.
