1965 Los Angeles Dodgers Replay: Dodgers, Koufax Shutout Twins 6-0 in 2nd Game of World Series

    In the second game of the World Series between the 1965 Los Angeles Dodgers and the Minnesota Twins in the 1965 LA Dodgers Replay, Sandy Koufax and the Dodgers shut out the Twins, 6-0.  Although Koufax gave up nine hits, the Twins stranded five runners in scoring position.  Striking out six and only giving up one run, Koufax pitched a complete game for the victory.

    Minnesota pitchers, Jim Kaat, Dick Boswell and Dick Stigman, combined to give up seven walks and nine hits.  With the help of two walks in the eighth inning, the Dodgers hit two doubles that scored three runs and put the game out of reach.

    Unlike the actual 1965 World Series where the Twins took a 2-0 lead, the Dodgers have turned the tables around and head home to Los Angeles with the 2-0 lead.
