Molina, Hamels spark benches-clearing fracas at Cards-Cubs

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Cardinals star Yadier Molina shouted at Cubs left-hander Cole Hamels after being grazed by a fastball, leading the benches and bullpens to clear Saturday night.

Molina was awarded first base in the second inning after Hamels’ 91 mph pitch clipped his left arm. He took a few steps toward first and stared at Hamels, then began barking at him and walked toward the mound. Cubs catcher Jonathan Lucroy stepped between Molina and Hamels while they jawed, and St. Louis teammate Matt Carpenter dragged Molina away while players poured onto the field.

No punches were thrown and no warnings or ejections issued following the standoff.

Feels like a waste at this point in the season, but what do I know?

Is there some history there? If not, talk about a huge overreaction by Molina.
