Major League Baseball handed down punishments to both Arizona Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo and St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina on Tuesday, after the two got into a heated altercation during Sunday’s game.
Both Lovullo and Molina received a one-game suspension, per R.J. Anderson of CBS Sports. Lovullo also was fined an undisclosed amount and will serve his suspension Tuesday night when his team takes on the San Francisco Giants.
Molina, on the other hand, will appeal his suspension and will be eligible to play until his appeal is heard. Given the fact he pushed home plate umpire Tim Timmons, it doesn’t seem likely he will get off unscathed.
