ST. LOUIS (AP) — Arizona manager Torey Lovullo was ejected by plate umpire Tim Timmons during the second inning of the Diamondbacks’ game at the St. Louis Cardinals.

Lovullo was disputing a called third strike on A.J. Pollock on Sunday and got into a shouting match with St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina during the argument with Timmons.

Molina appeared to lunge at Lovullo and make contact as both benches emptied.

St. Louis manager Mike Matheny stepped in between Molina and Lovullo.
