Picture of the Day: Lawmakers Slug It Out in Annual Baseball Game

It happens every year: members of Congress don baseball uniforms and play against each other, Republicans vs. Democrats. It's like the All-Star Game, but with less talent and more political power. Last night, the annual game was held at Nationals Park in Washington.

Democrats won 8-2 behind the stud pitching of Rep. Cedric Richmond (La.), who came within five outs of a no-hitter, according to ABC.

See the full collection of game photos from National Journal's Chet Susslin here.
