VIDEO: Torey Lovullo ejected for 1st time as Diamondbacks manager

Here's a side of Torey Lovullo we don't get to see very often.

The first-year Arizona Diamondbacks manager showed his fiery side at the end of the fourth inning of Wednesday night's game vs. the visiting St. Louis Cardinals after D-backs catcher Jeff Mathis was ejected by home plate umpire D.J. Reyburn for arguing a strike call.

Following Mathis' ejection, Lovullo rushed on to the field to have some words with Reyburn himself. It didn't end well.

The D-backs trailed St. Louis by a 3-1 score at the time of the ejections, and they went on to lose the game 4-3 despite a ninth-inning rally.

This marks the first time Lovullo has been ejected as the D-backs' manager, but it's not the first time in his baseball career that he's been tossed. He was ejected from a game on May 30, 2014 when he was a bench coach for the Boston Red Sox. (Fast-forward to the 3:35 mark in the video below.)
