By The Associated Press
4 MINNEAPOLIS - ST. PAUL -
Sandy Koufax, the golden arm
of the Los Angeles Dodgers, won
the World Series yesterday when
he fired a 2-0, three-hit shutout
at the Minnesota Twins in the
seventh game before a record 50,-
596 fans at Metropolitan Stadium.
Coming back with only two days
rest after his 7-0 victory Monday
at Los. Angeles, Koufax finally
terminated the streak of home
park domination in this Series.
Sandy ended the game with a
strikeout flourish, mowing down
his ninth and 10th victim for the
last two outs.
Kogfax, who had won and lost
in previous duels with Jim Kaat,
the Twins' left-handed ace, yield-
ed a single to Zoilo Versalles in
the third, a double to rookie Frank
Quilici in the fifth, and a single
to Harmon Killebrew in the ninth.
Johnson Homers
Lou Johnson, a 'much traveled
athlete who has made the scene
at Ponca. City, Olean, Lancaster
and way points before the Dodg-
ers brought him up in May, hit
the home run that doomed Xaat.
The 31-year-old outfielder from
Lexington, Ky., hit the foul pole
screen in left' leading off the
fourth inning.;
Ron Fairly's 11th hit of the
Series, a double to the right field
wall, and Wes Parker's' bouncing
single: over Don Mincher's head
to right field, scoring Fairly, fin-
fished off Kaat in the fourth be-
fore abUan was out.
Brilliant Play
Koufax escaped from his most
serious jam: in the fifth on a
brilliant play by Jim Gilliam. Quil-
lei's doube A0o the' 'left center
screen and''a walk to pinch hit-
ter Rich 1ollins on a '3-2 .pitch
that drew protests from Koufax
gave the Twins their best shot of
the sunny afternoon.
Versalles rapped a hot drive
down the third'baseline that Gil-
liam gloved 'behind the' bag and
was able to scramble to third base
in time to foce Quilici.
The big home.town crowd, which
had cheered Kouf ax when he came
to bat in the top of the ninth,
whooped it up for the Twins in
the last inning as Killebrew sin-
gled tq left with one out.
No Rally
But Earl B ,ttey struck out on
three blazers and Bob Atlia n
went dtWn swinging for the finth

time in the Series.
The Dodgers converged around
.the mount, slapping Koufax on
the back and Manager Walter
Alston, who had chosen Sandy
over a rested Don Drysdale for this
final game, rushed out to pump
the left hand that won him an-
other World Championship.
"I didn't have the curve ball at
all," said Sandy in the dressing
room. "I couldn't get it over. I
went with the fast ball."
In Control
Drysdale was warming up in the
bullpen through the early innings,
especially when Sandy walked
Tony Oliva and Killebrew in the
first after retiring the first two
batters. But big Don never was
needed. Nor was anyone else.
Koufax remained in control all
the way, striking out six in the
first three innings and then bid-
ing his time for a blazing finish.
He retired 12 men in a row at
one time, until Killebrew singled
in the ninth. The Twins got only
two men as far as second, and
no one reached third.
NL Dominance
It was the third .straight Na-
tional 'League Series success and
their eighth in the last 12 years
although the American still holds
a 37-25 edge.
Alston, the senior citizen among
National League.'-managers, at 53
with 12 years of service behind
him, won his fourth Series to only

DODGER LEFTFIELDER LOU JOHNSON lashes out with a
mighty cut and sends the ball into the left-field seats for a home
run to give the Dodgers a 1-0 lead in the fourth inning of yester-
day's final World Series game. The Dodgers rode Sandy Koufax's
three-hit, 2-0 victory to a Series triumph over the Minnesota
Twins.
