House Republicans Claim Pre-emptive Baseball Victory on Wikipedia

Partisan sparring over the 54th Annual Roll Call Congressional Baseball Game is well underway, including on Wikipedia.  

According to the Congress-Edits robot, the Wikipedia entry for the game was edited anonymously from inside the House to declare the Republican team victorious in Thursday evening's contest, allowing the GOP to break the tie and claim the Roll Call Trophy.  

But that edit came after someone had added the line to the chart for the 2015 game, initially declaring  the Democrats would win the game and hold on to the trophy.
