MINNEAPOLIS-ST. PAUL R--
The favored Los Angeles Dodgers
will send 23-game winner Don
Drysdale against Minnesota's Jim
Grant today in the opening game
of a World Series that pits Dodger
pitching against Minnesota's home
Minnesota's very first Series,
"They've got three real good
pitchers. I've got pretty good
pitching. They've got a good bull
pen. So have I. Maybe they have
more over-all speed than we do.
We certainly have got more powek.
I understand Drysdale is their No.
1 pinch hitter."
Grant, 21-game winner in reg-
ular season play, has been the
solid man of the Twins staff since
he picked up a fast curve from
pitching coach Johnny Sain.
The muscular six-foot, 186-
pound right-hander has complet-
ed 14 of 39 starts for a 3.30 earned
run average. However, he has been
nicked for 34 home runs, a weak-
ness that he probably won't have
to worry about too much in his
Series. The Dodgers are low' in'
the majors with only 78 homers.
Drysdale, 23-12, has a decep-
tive three-quarter side arm motion
on right-handed batters. Through-
ly tested in Series play overthree
different years, Drysdale has been
the workhorse of the staff with
308 innings and 42 starts.

When Sam Mele, the Minnesota
manager, sent his Twins through
their final series tuneup, he re-
ported that some of the boys were
upset by a story in the local paper
quoting Buzzy Bavasi, Dodger gen-
eral manager, as predicting a four-

FIRST STEP TO VICTORY
Scoring against Michigan State in the final quarter of last year's annual intra-state battle, Michi-
gan's Rick Sygar leaps over a fallen Spartan into the end zone for the first Wolverine TD. Sygar,
who played an instrumental role in the Michigan victory, took a five-yard swing pass from quarter-
back Bob Timberlake on the play. The Maize and Blue snapped a five-year domination of the
series by MSU with last year's 17-10 triumph. The two teams meet this Saturday for the 58th time
on the gridiron. Michigan holds the overall edge with 36 wins versus 16 defeats and five ties. This
year Michigan State is ranked No. 4 in the nation and possesses a 3-0 season slate.
