The Democrats outscoredĀ the Republicans to win Roll Call’s 56th annual Congressional Baseball Game on Thursday by a score of 11-2. The game at Nationals Park went on in Washington, despite a shooting attack on the Republicans’ practice the day before in Virginia that left the third-ranking GOP House member, Rep. Steve Scalise of Louisiana, in critical condition. FourĀ others were also injured.

Here’s the entire evening of the game in photos:
