Republican Manager Joe L. Barton of Texas was quick to counter.

"While you've won six games in a row, we've won about 60 votes in a row here on the House floor," Barton said.

Democrats Celebrate Baseball Win on House Floor

Democratic Manager Mike Doyle brought the coveted Roll Call trophy to the House floor Thursday, celebrating the Democrats 15-6 win over the Republicans in Wednesday's Roll Call Congressional Baseball Game.

"This year we broke two records: we broke an attendance record last night and we also broke a record for the amount of money raised for the charities, over $400,000 for three charities," Doyle said. "I want to congratulate the Democratic baseball team this is our sixth victory in a row, not that we're counting."
