About Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Los Angeles Dodgers

The rivalry between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Arizona Diamondbacks is relatively new – but fiercely intense nonetheless. It all started with a game in September 2011. Diamondbacks’ batter, Gerardo Parra, was a little taken-aback by a couple of errant pitches from the Dodgers’ pitcher, Hong-Chic Kuo. Parra soon managed to hit a home run and took his time as he made his way around the bases. The next night the Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw hit Gerardo Parra with a pitch that got him ejected. There was no conflict – at least not right away. Next year in May, the battle resumed as Ian Kennedy threw a pitch well inside to Kershaw, who responded in a similar fashion later in the game - still no onset of direct conflict. More than a year later, things finally escalated between the two teams. Yasiel Puig, the Dodgers outfielder who was performing quite tremendously, was hit in the face with a pitch by Kennedy. Half an inning later, Dodgers starter Greinke hit Miguel Montero with a pitch. An old-fashioned stare-down took place near the first base, but things remained calm. The boiling point was finally reached as another skirmish took place between Kennedy and Greinke but this time things got out of hand. Benches cleared and a brawl began. Even though the rivalry between these two teams is relatively new, they have had their fair share of memorable moments. Let’s take a look at them.

Memorable Moments – Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Los Angeles Dodgers

The Chase Field Swimming Pool Incident

After winning the NL West in 2013, the Dodgers violated an unwritten rule by jumping into the Diamondbacks’ swimming pool. They defended their actions by saying that everything is fair game during celebrations and it was just a bunch of players having some fun. The Diamondbacks did not share the sentiments. Willie Bloomquist called the act classless and talked about how a genuinely high ranking team like the New York Yankees would never do something of this sort. With rumors of the Dodgers urinating in the pool, matters got sourer.
