Erin Andrews had a rough night broadcasting Game 3 of the ALCS from Detroit Tuesday night. Erin first referred to the Tiger's manager Jim Leyland as "Joe Leyland". Andrews followed that gaffe up when in a postgame interview with Mike Napoli, she started to call Justin Verlander "Justin Bieber", according to NESN on Oct. 16. That put a smile on Napoli's face. The Fox sportscaster may have been distracted by trying to dodge another Gatorade bath like she suffered Sunday.
Erin Andrews' job in covering the baseball playoffs is pretty simple. Basically it amounts to chatting up players and other broadcasters when the guys calling the game cut away.
There aren't too many rules, but one of them is getting the players' names right. Tuesday night in Detroit that was apparently too much to ask.
Red Sox catcher Mike Napoli homered off of Tigers Ace Justin Verlander in the seventh inning, giving Boston the lead and advancing the beantown team to a 2-1 lead in the ALCS series.

Andrews has probably had enough of this particular job, after suffering a Gatorade bath Sunday night while interviewing the Sox's Jarrod Saltalamacchia, according to the Daily News.
As Erin asked Salty about how it felt to be the first Boston catcher since Carlton Fisk to have a walk-off winning hit, she got hit with a bucket load of the sticky liquid.
Andrews was taken to task for last night's name goofs on social media. She responded herself by retweeting, "If u really think I have Bieber on my mind, then u are soooooo right #sarcasm".
Sunday she posted a picture on Twitter of her getting drenched with a caption that read, "Gotta love postseason baseball".
We do! Especially with Erin's bonuses.
