Timmons got between Molina and Lovullo, but he was pushed aside, precipitating the second-inning incident.

[The contact] was just incidental.” MLB officials may not agree with Timmons once they review the episode and decide whether to fine or suspend Molina.
An eight-time all-star considered among the finest catchers in the game, Molina is also somewhat known for having a temper, while the ejection marked the third of Lovullo’s career.
