For the second year in a row, the GOP congressional baseball squad coached by Rep. Joe Barton lost to their Democratic counterparts in the annual congressional baseball game.

Tuesday’s game first appeared to be a nail-biter–tied 4-4 after six innings of play–but it ended up a rout. The Democrats scored nine runs in the seventh (and final) inning; Republicans could answer with only one additional run, leaving the final score 13-5.
