Welcome to the big leagues, Julie

Washington Nationals sideline reporter Julie Alexandria gets caught in Gatorade showers first two days on job.

Julie Alexandria‘s first two nights on the job covering the Nationals for MASN were wet ones.

But not because of Mother Nature. It came by way of the Gatorade jug.

The former FOX college football sideline reporter before joining MASN, has had the unfortunate luck to cover back-to-back one-hitters at Nationals Park in Washington on Thursday and Friday.

Alexandria was interviewing Thursday's winning pitcher Gio Gonzalez when he received his Gatorade shower after a combined one-hitter to beat Cincinnati. On Friday, it almost seemed like the sideline reporter was the target for the Gatorade dump Jordan Zimmermann earned for his efforts in a complete-game one-hitter shutout over the Reds.

Alexandria was a good sport on both occasions, but we have a feeling this may grow old (and cold) over time.

Here is the video from Thursday:


And here's video from Friday — and give her credit for composing herself and finishing the interview of Zimmermann:
