During her one-year stint as MASN's Nationals "sideline" reporter (I use quotations because baseball doesn't really have a sideline), Kristina Akra was regularly doused by Gatorade while conducting celebratory on-field interviews.
Akra has since moved on to the MLB Network, so when MASN introduced her replacement, Julie Alexandria, she knew what she was getting herself into.
@dcsportsnexus 1.) I will just be meeting the team tomorrow, not going on air though.2.) wear a bathing suit.

After Washington's 8-1 win over Cincinnati Thursday, I guess you could say that Alexandria received her first taste of victory.
Welcome, Julie. Don't forget that bathing suit.
