Yadier Molina didn't like something Torey Lovullo said.
Arizona Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo was ejected in the second inning of Sunday's game against the St. Louis Cardinals as a brawl erupted between the two teams.
Lovullo disputed a third strike call on A.J. Pollock, which resulted in an argument with umpire Tim Timmons and St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina.
Molina moved toward Lovullo before they were separated and the benched cleared.
Watch the argument below:
After the game, Molina complained that Lovullo was yelling profanities towards him during the game.
"You can't talk to a player like that. Or an umpire. You've got to be professional," he said, according to MLB.com.
Lovullo acknowledged he took it "too far," saying he was just "frustrated with what I was watching."
"The first thing I want to say is I have the utmost respect for Yadier Molina. He's one of the best catchers the game's ever seen," he said.
"I just was going out there to talk about something with the umpire and was referencing something and used a poor choice of words and he took offense to it. I wish I could take back what I said but it really wasn't really directed at him. It was more a term of me saying I respect him on that level that he's getting certain things because he's that good," he said.
Both Molina and Lovullo were handed one-game suspensions by the Commissioners' office.
