MINNEAPOLIS - ST. PAUL (Y')
-The Minnesota Twins, stung by
Dodger talk of a four-straight
sweep, knocked out Don Drysdale
in a six-run third inning yester-
day and rode to an 8-2 opening
World Series victory over Los An-
geles on Jim Grant's steady pitch-
ing.
Zoilo Versalles, a wiry 155-pound
Cuban, stunned t h e favored
Dodgers with a three-run homer
off Drysdale, drove in a fourth
run with a single in the sixth
and stole second base on a pitch-
out.
A standing room crowd of 47,-
797, a record, for Metropolitan
Stadium, watched quietly while
Ron Fairly's homer gave the
Dodgers an early lead in the sec-
ond and hummed when Don

Mincher tied it in the same inning
with a homer off Drysdale,
Drysdale Chased
The big crowd went into a spin
in the third when Drysdale, the
towering 23-game winner, was
driven to cover. Before Howie Reed
finally got the third out, 11 men
had batted and the ball game was
out of control.
Frank Quilici, a .208 hitter
brought up from the Denver farm
in July to fill an aching second
base void, stroked a double and a
single in the big inning. The feat
tied a Series record that had been
shared by 12 others.
With room to breathe and en-'
joy the clear sunshine, Grant
marched along steadily as he had
done all year while piling up 21

victories for the American League
champions.
Grant kept Maury Wills, the
Dodgers' big running threat, off
the bases until he singled in the
seventh. The man who stole 94
bases in the season was complete-
ly stymied because there already
was a runner on second. Wills
finally did drive in a run with a
bunt single in the ninth.
Versalles, who had vowed to run
on Dodger pitching, got his chance
in the sixth after he had driven in
his fourth run with a single. Al-
though the Dodgers called a pitch-

out, catcher John Roseboro's
throw was on the wrong side of
second, and Zoilo slid in safely.
Drysdale and Grant were locked
at 1-1 when Quilici rapped a dou-
ble past third base down the left
field line leading off the big third.
Then came a bad break for Drys-
dale and the Dodgers.
Miscue Hurts
Grant bunted back to the box
and Drysdale slipped and fell. He
threw to first from a sitting posi -
tion but Jim Lefebvre, covering
the bag, juggled the throw for an
error.

Versalles, who packs solid power
in a skinny frame, rifled a homer
into the lower left field stands,
breaking it wide open.
Sandy Valdespino doubled to
right and, after Tony Oliva, the
only hitless Twin, grounded out,
Harmon Killebrew singled to left.
Drysdale recovered and struck
out Jimmy Hall but walked Minch-
er on a 3-1 pitch, loading the
bases.
RecorddTying Hit
Earl Battey dunked a two-run
single into short right and, when
Quilici followed with his second
hit, a single that scored Mincher,
Drysdale was done. Only two of
the runs were earned but they all
counted.
With no pressure on his back
Grant rolled home easily although
he gave up 10 hits. All were sin-
gles, except Fairly's home run into

2 Win
the right field bleachers in the
second. That was quickly matched
by Mincher's 400-footer deep into
the same section in the same in-
ning. Then came the big third,
and it was all over.
Leading 1-0 on the home
grounds, Manager Sam Mele plan-
ned to come right back with Jim
Kaat, the 18-game winning south-
paw who was the second-best per-
former on his staff.
Sandy Kouf ax, the 26-game
Dodger ace who missed the opener
because he was observing Yom
Kippur, the most solemn day on
the Jewish calendar, will be back!
to try to square matters for Man-
ager Walter Alston.
Although Oliva, the American
League batting champ, went hit-
less in four trips, he did tie a
Series record by making seven put-
outs in right field.

GRID SELECTIONSI
This week's selections will be a real challenge, but there is one
guy on campus who thinks he has the system beat. He lives on the
nineteenth floor of University Towers, that place with all the windows,
and it looks like it isn't even open yet. Every week he makes up a
set of ten cards. On one side he puts one team and on the other side
he prints the name of the opposing team. He then takes these over
to his window, opens it, and throws them out. After he scurries
down to the first floor he goes outside and looks for his papers. Which-
ever team lands upright is sure to be a winner, he claims. Any that
come to rest against a wall, with no team facing up, is declared a
tie. He feels that he is the only one who can use this system, since
the right height from the ground is important. This person has also
asked us not to disclose his name, since his landlord is still searching
for the litterbug who throws paper out of his window once a week.
But whatever method you use to select the teams, just be sure you
have your entry in before midnight Friday. The place to enter is at
420 Maynard, that building next to the SAB. This week's winner
receives two tickets to the Michigan Theatre, currently showing
"Marriage on the Rocks."
