For the sixth straight year, the Democrats have vanquished the Republicans in the annual Congressional Baseball Game.
The score of Wednesday's encounter was 15-6, and Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-Lousiana) was the hero, as he pitched a complete game (related: Richmond played college baseball at Morehouse; also related: the Republicans intentionally walked him in four of his five trips to the plate) ...
As well, Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-California), the game's lone female participant, notched an RBI single. On the Republican side, Rep. Kevin Brady (Texas) plated a pair of runs with a double.
In the end, the margin provided an improvement over last year's game, a 22-0 win for the Democrats. Interestingly, after the 2014 affair the all-time series is now deadlocked at 38-38-1.
The Congressional Baseball Game each benefits various charities.
