A federal judge denied former Yankee Roger Clemens' pitch to have his case dismissed Friday.
Clemens is going to have to face another perjury trial after a federal judge denied his motion to prevent another trial.
His first at-bat in court ended in a mistrial earlier this summer after only two days of testimony, because the prosecution introduced inadmissible evidence.
Clemens’ lawyers claimed the prosecution sabotaged that trial because they knew it was going badly.
Judge Reggie Walton criticized the prosecution's actions in the first trial but said the law does not allow him to throw out the indictment.
He also said the defense failed to prove to him that the prosecution intentionally threw the first trial.
The seven-time Cy Young award winner is accused of lying to Congress about using performance enhancing drugs.
The new trial will begin in April.
