47,584 fans were treated to a fine game at Cinergy Field '00 as only one run separated the combatants at game's end. The Festivus Miracles won by the slimmest of margins, 5 to 4.

Festivus started with a bang, jumping out to an early lead in their half of the first scoring 2 runs using 2 hits. Eddie Stanky led off the inning for Festivus when he reached on an error. After an out was recorded, Richie Ashburn came to the plate and drew a walk. Shano Collins then tripled scoring a run. One out later, Heinie Manush stepped up to the plate and he banged out a single scoring the final run of the inning. CW made it exciting in the 9th, but they were unable to push the needed runs across.
