St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina had to be restrained Sunday after Arizona Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo gestured towards the catcher in an argument with the home plate umpire.
Molina charged at Lovullo, but was held back by the umpire. Benches cleared and coaches then restrained an angry Molina.
After the game, Molina said the opposing manager called him a “mother f*****” twic, which set him off.
