The Congressional Baseball Game between the Republicans and Democrats took place on Wednesday night at Nationals Park. If you didn’t know the game was being played, you’re certainly not alone. To be honest, I didn’t know the Congressional Baseball Game was a thing until about 15 minutes ago. Anyways, Pat McAfee was doing some channel surfing on Wednesday night and stumbled upon the game and delivered some all-time great commentary.

McAfee just so happened to tune into the game when the most exciting play of the night took place. A bloop single over the second basemen’s head allowed a Republican baserunner to round third. What happened from there was pure chaos in the best way possible, and McAfee calling the play at the plate was pure gold.

The Republicans were able to earn a 13-12 win on Wednesday night snapping the Democrats’ three-game winning streak in the series. The Democrats have actually won 10 of the last 12 matchups, but the Republicans own the series with 43 wins overall.

Fun fact about the game, the biggest margin of victory came back in 1928 when the Democrats took down the GOP members by a cool 32 runs with a final score of 36-4.
