ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- Tampa Bay stars Evan Longoria and B.J. Upton had to be separated in a dugout dispute after Arizona's Gerardo Parra hit a two-run homer in the fifth inning that helped the Diamondbacks beat the Rays 2-1 Sunday.

Rodrigo Lopez and three relievers combined on a two-hitter for the Diamondbacks, who took two of three from the Rays.

Longoria, the third baseman, and Upton, the center fielder, were seen having a verbal altercation in the dugout after the Diamondbacks went ahead in the fifth.

The pair had to be separated by teammates.

Lopez (4-6) scattered two hits, walked five and struck out three.

After Blaine Boyer and Juan Gutierrez combined for two hitless innings, Aaron Heilman pitched the ninth for his second save.

Arizona's road trip continues Monday night in St. Louis.
