On October 6, 1963 — The Los Angeles Dodgers win 2 – 1 over the New York giving the Dodgers a four-game sweep in the World Series.

Sandy Koufax wins his second game, 2-1. Frank Howard leads the offense with a home run and a single, the only two hits Whitey Ford gives up, and New York’s first baseman Joe Pepitone’s error (loses a thrown ball in the white-shirted crowd) leads to the decisive run in the seventh inning.

Mickey Mantle has tied the game at one when he homered in the top of seventh.
