WASHINGTON — The U.S. Attorney’s Office in D.C. is essentially telling a federal judge it’s time to play ball and move forward in the prosecution of legendary baseball pitcher Roger Clemens, who is charged with lying to Congress in 2008 about his steroid use.

Prosecutors filed a brief on Friday in Washington saying the defense has offered no good reason to dismiss charges and is “wrong legally and factually,” according to the Associated Press.

AP reported that Clemens claimed in a motion filed last month that the  indictment is vague and contains far too many separate accusations of lying in one count.

Trial is set for July.
