Dodgers in ’65 World Series
October 11, 1965: Dodgers, from left, Maury Wills, Sandy Koufax and Willie Davis celebrate after winning Game 5 of the 1965 World Series against the Minnesota Twins. In that game, Koufax pitched a four-hit shutout, striking out 10.
After Koufax’s pitching effort, Los Angeles Times staff writer Frank Finch wrote:
“Koufax’s 27th triumph and ninth shutout of 1965 defies description.
For the 84th time in his career, the second time in a World Series and the 22nd time this year, dandy Sandy struck out at least 10 batsmen.
Three of the four singles were fortunate, to say the least, and he walked only one batsman.”
Koufax was named MVP of the series, which the Dodgers won in seven games.
