Dodgers manager Roberts suspended, Padres' Green fined

WATCH: Manager fight breaks out between Dodgers' Dave Roberts, Padres' Andy Green

Tempers flare as surging Los Angeles Dodgers blitz San Diego Padres

Roberts' suspension will be served tonight, when the Clubs continue their series at Petco Park in San Diego.

Hill (5-4) threw seven innings of four-hit ball while walking one. Instead, the Dodgers pitcher struck the infielder out.

Roberts broke away from Gibson and knocked Green back a step while contacting Holbrook in the back.

Roberts was suspended and fined for his role in a benches clearing feud during the team's 10-4 win over the Padres.

Richard retired the first two hitters he faced before Justin Turner singled. "I felt good today". Yes, they may do the heavy lifting, but without the brainpower that Roberts brings to this team, they are nowhere near having this sort of success. The 37-year-old native of Boston made his season debut against San Diego on April 5, recording a victory after allowing just one run and two hits in five frames.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Dodgers are -184 money line favorites versus the Padres, who have odds of +164 to pull off the upset.

Roberts was then restrained by Dodgers players and coaches as he hollered from his dugout toward the Padres' dugout. Roberts won't appeal the suspension and is out for Saturday's game. "I'm still not certain what they mean". But when you start pointed comments about a player, then I think I've got a problem with it. "So I did some modifications out there during the game", Hill said. "Now it all feels as one".

Umpire Joe West continued to work Friday's game in Milwaukee despite being hit on the back of the head by a ball. In eight games, Los Angeles has outscored San Diego 63-18, including 18-4 the past two nights.

"Building on his last outing, he was fantastic", said acting manager Bob Geren. Well, their month of July is off to a similar start. With Rich Hill set to face Dillon Overton in the pitching matchup, the over/under currently sits at 8.5 runs. Four of them have been grand slams (one last year, three this season). I try not to do too much.

Hill's fourth inning RBI single was his first hit of the season and his first hit in the big leagues since June 19, 2009.

Forsythe didn't hit a home run but he had his second consecutive four-hit game.
