The trend of post-game interviewers getting assaulted after a walkoff win continued on Friday night in San Diego. After Jesus Guzman delivered a walkoff single to give the Padres a 4-3, 17 inning win over the Blue Jays, it was time for the post-game interview. Padres dugout reporter Kelly Crull stood with Guzman for the interview when Everth Cabrera took the long route around the field with the Gatorade bucket.

One issue arose, though: Guzman moved too soon, and Crull caught on to their game and attempted to flee. Guzman proceeded to hold Crull in a light hug, and both got the bath from Cabrera. Give Crull credit for taking it in stride and carrying on her interview with Guzman like she wasn't dripping wet. It's actually the second time this week she's gotten showered, though Wednesday's red Gatorade shower on her cream colored outfit was probably a lot more irritating. After the game, Crull tweeted that she needed new clothes. For her sake, I hope the Padres don't have another walkoff win for a few weeks.
