Lovullo's rant prompts angry response from Cards' Molina

WATCH: Benches clear after Yadier Molina goes after Diamondbacks manager

Arizona manager Torey Lovullo says he regrets his choice of words that set off St. Louis catcher Yadier Molina and triggered a benches-clearing incident.

He intimated that his "poor choice of words" came out of "ultimate respect" for Molina as one of the game's top catchers and his ability to frame a pitch and get a strike call.

Molina took issue with Lovullo's words and immediately stood to meet him, leading the benches to clear and the two to be separated.

Lovullo was ejected for leaving the dugout to argue balls and strikes but Molina was allowed to remain in the game.

Lovullo was on the field arguing a called third strike on Diamondbacks outfielder A.J. Pollock called by plate umpire Tim Timmons. "You can't allow that".

Chris Owings singled off Leone (0-2) starting the eighth and Peralta hit his second home run this season. "If you're going to call somebody that, you better be ready to fight".

The Cardinals hosted the Diamondbacks in their series finale on Sunday (ARI-STL GameTracker), and things got testy early.

"I'd like to say I wouldn't do it". "For me, I'm just going to go out there and try to help the team win".

Michael Wacha (1-1) outpitched Zack Greinke (0-1) in the chilly weather.

Dominic Leone and Matt Bowman each pitched a flawless inning of relief for the Cardinals, and Jordan Hicks gave up an unearned run in the eighth.

Yadier Molina is known for not taking any; you know what, from anyone - rewind back to the dogs days of summer during the 2010 season between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Cincinnati Reds.

"They grinded all game long pretty good", Greinke said.

Lovullo said he expects to be fined for the ejection. I always have my guy's back.
