Roenicke comments on Greinke incident

ST. LOUIS -- Milwaukee manager Ron Roenicke would not take sides in the controversy between former Brewers pitcher Zack Greinke and San Diego slugger Carlos Quentin. Greinke, who compiled a 25-9 record in Milwaukee from 2011-12, hit Quentin with a pitch on Thursday night. Quentin charged the mound and Greinke sustained a separated left collarbone in the melee.

Roenicke was quick to point out that Greinke doesn't not have the reputation as a headhunter.

"I don't know Zack to hit people on purpose," Roenicke said. "Sometimes, with a hitter like [Quentin], you've got to pitch him [inside]."
