The Democrats killed the Republicans, 13-5, in a game of congressional baseball at Nationals Park on Tuesday night -- reminding the GOP that despite its hope for the midterm elections, the Democrats still rule the House.

At the bottom of the sixth inning, the Republicans tied it up 4-4 and some of the fans on the Democratic side got ugly.

While Sen. John Ensign, R-Nev., bolted to third, a fan on the left side screamed, "Don't let the wife cheater score." Ensign did not look amused. When Rep. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., was up to bat, he was greeted with the chant, "earmarks, earmarks, earmarks" from the D side. He was out at first by the end of the sixth.

The real game changer was the seventh inning, when the Democrats scored nine runs. In the top of the seventh, Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., stole home on a wild pitch as a pinch runner for Rep. Glenn Nye, D-Va., who was a pinch runner for Rep. Bill Owens, D-N.Y. (who pulled a hamstring on his way to first).

The Democrats were up 6-4. Fans bounced up and down to "Yes we can! Yes we can!" Rep. Linda Sanchez, D-Calif. the only lady giving it a swing on both sides, hit a single. From there, the game went sour for the Republicans. The Democrats were running one after another home.

When Yeas & Nays made its way over to the Republican side where the seats were clearing out, with only the sight of Bud Light Lime bottles (Gen. Stanley McChrystal's favorite) left in seat cup holders of an entire empty section.
