Dodgers over Twins (4-3)

Don Drysdale was a key player on the 1965 Los Angeles Dodgers. He not only went 23-12 as a pitcher, but hit .300 with a .508 slugging percentage. He was the only player on the team that hit .300 and the only player that slugged over .400. He appeared in 14 games as a pinch-hitter.

Sandy Koufax went 26-8 while Ron Perranoski had 17 saves. Bob Miller had 9 saves.

Among the position players, Maury Wills and Jim Gilliam hit over .280. Wills stole 94 bases. Lou Johnson and Jim Lefebvre hit 12 home runs each, making them the top sluggers on a team that was seen at the time as offensively weak, although it was the second dead-ball era.

The team went on to win the 1965 World Series, defeating the Minnesota Twins, with Koufax pitching a shutout in the seventh game. Ron Fairly and Lou Johnson were the top hitters in the Series.
