"All rivalries in baseball are really good, but once you get that first benches-clearing (moment), that's when it kind of goes to that next level," Price said following L.A.'s 11-6 win, according to Juan Toribio of MLB.com. "I'm sure we'll be ready to play (Saturday) and so will they. I think we have (Clayton Kershaw) going, so, we'll be ready."
The game marked the first time the NL West rivals played since L.A. knocked San Diego out of the playoffs during last season's National League Division Series.
"It was like a playoff game," Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. "The intensity was there. I can look up and down my lineup card and everybody contributed. ... I'm just spent emotionally. Proud of everybody."
The two clubs will meet 18 more times this season, including Saturday and Sunday to conclude a three-game series.
