A team of Republican lawmakers won the Congressional Baseball Game on Wednesday night, securing their fourth win in a row, and earning their 46th total win since the game's inception.

The baseball game, which is played for charity, has become a staple in Washington, D.C., and sees Democratic lawmakers face off against Republicans from both chambers. Republicans hold the highest amount of wins since the matchup's inception in 1909 with 46 wins as of Wednesday, compared to Democrats' 42 wins. The game was cancelled in 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The final score was 31-11, and the game concluded after the seventh inning, according to C-SPAN.

The latest game was briefly interrupted, after eight climate protesters ran onto the field. All eight have been arrested, and are being charged with interference with a member of the U.S. Capitol Police, which is a federal crime.

"We are proud of our officers who are working to keep everyone safe during tonight’s Congressional Baseball Game for Charity," the Capitol Police said in a thread on X. "Before the charity game, we were aware that some people planned to possibly protest. This was discussed during our planning meetings and put in our comprehensive action plan to ensure we had plenty of resources to swiftly respond. When eight people tried to protest on the field, our officers quickly stopped them and arrested them."
