The Minnesota Twins received an unkindly welcome when they arrived in Los Angeles for the third game of the World Series. With the scored tied 2-2 in the bottom of the eighth inning, Jim Gilliam tripled and scored the winning run on a sacrifice fly by Willie Davis.
The Twins scattered ten hits, but were able to tally two runs in the sixth inning on a two-run home run by Bob Allison. Both starting pitchers, Camilo Pascual for Minnesota and Claude Osteen for Los Angeles did not get a decision. Johnny Klippsten suffered the loss, and Bob Miller earned the win.
The Twins are trailing 3-0 with Jim “Mudcat” Grant facing Don Drysdale for the second time in the fourth game of the series.
