Left fielder Heinie Manush had 3 base hits as the Festivus Miracles topped the Albany Apocalypse by a score of 7 to 6 at Forbes Field '65.

Festivus took the lead for keeps in the bottom of the 7th inning scoring 2 runs using 2 hits. Kal Daniels kicked off the action when he drew a walk. After an out was recorded, Manush stepped in and he doubled driving in a run. After another out, Jose Reyes came to the plate and was walked intentionally. Rod Carew came up and he delivered a base-hit scoring the final run of the inning. Albany had a chance to come back in the 9th but they came up short.

The victory was credited to Paul Lapalme(1-0) who went 2 and 1/3 innings, allowing no runs. Bruce Sutter earned his 1st save. Mellie Wolfgang(0-1) ended up with the loss in relief.

'Fundamentals, fundamentals, fundamentals' said Eric Palmer after the game. 'We lost this game today because we didn't follow the instructions every Little Leaguer hears every day.'
