CongBaseballThe Democrats trounced Republicans in the annual Congressional Baseball Game, 22-0 with the Democrats out hitting the Republicans, 24-3.

“It is wonderful,” Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) told POLITICO, referring to the game. “I think the Republicans are going to try to raise a lot of money to try to defeat Cedric Richmond,” referring to pitcher Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.).

“It’s time for us to win,” House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said on the field before the game. There are no reports that he was seen crying after the game.

Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.), manager of the Democratic team, announced after the game that the event raised more than $300,000 for its charities: The Washington Literacy Center, The Boys and Girls Club of Greater Washington and The Washington Nationals Dream Foundation.

The Republicans still lead the series, 38-37-1.
