Democrat throws near-no-no in win over GOP | nationals.com: News

WASHINGTON — The Democrats and Republicans in Congress haven’t been able to agree on much in recent days, but they won’t argue on one point — Rep. Cedric Richmond sure knows how to pitch.

The 37-year-old right-hander from Louisiana played baseball during his days at Morehouse College and showed that he hasn’t forgotten much. Richmond made his debut in the annual Congressional Baseball Game on Thursday night, throwing a one-hitter and striking out 13, as the Democrats rolled to an easy 8-2 victory in the seven-inning contest at Nationals Park.

Thursday was the 50th edition of this game, which has been a fundraiser for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Washington plus the Washington Literacy Council for years. The contest raised more than $134,000 last year, and this year’s game was a third straight Democratic victory.
