Two items of note for which one can draw his one conclusion:
2. Greinke’s pitch that hit Quentin came on a 3-2 count in a 2-1 game.
My conclusion is that there was no way that Greinke hit Quentin intentionally, nor do I think Marquis’ pitch earlier had any ill intent.
I now see people on Twitter saying there’s history between Greinke and Quentin. Uh, that was the 116th time in Quentin’s career he has been hit by a pitch. He led the majors in HBP each of the last two seasons. He has history with lots of people. Oh, and Greinke had hit him twice before Thursday night. It’s not exactly like Greinke constantly hunts down Quentin.
