Pirates post-game interviewer gets pied and showered

After the Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Houston Astros 5-4 in walkoff fashion thanks to a Houston error, Root Sports post-game interviewer Robby Incmikoski was interviewing Pedro Alvarez, who tied the game at four in the eighth inning with a titanic home run. Near the end of the interview, you can see Alvarez look past Incmikoski and slightly smile. Out of nowhere, Pirates pitcher AJ Burnett pies Incmikoski in the face, an honor usually reserved for the player getting interviewed post-game.

A baffled Incmikoski then tries to regroup, but before he can ask Alvarez his next question, he gets doused with the Gatorade bucket by another Pirates player. Give Incmikoski credit, because he managed to hold his composure after the Gatorade shower and finish the interview with Alvarez.

That dry cleaning bill sure will be ugly, though. I hope the Pirates cover that one.
