1965 Los Angeles Dodgers Replay: Twins Loss 3-2, Trail Dodgers 3-0 in World Series

    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.
