GAME 2 - Candlestick Park - LAD 13, SFG 4
Sandy Koufax vs Bill O'Dell
The Dodgers staked Koufax to a 10-0 lead after just 3 1/2 innings worth of play. The lanky lefthander from the Dodgers former home (Brooklyn) let his guard down and gave up 2 runs in both the 4th and 5th innings before blanking the Giants for his final 2 frames. By the time Phil Ortega took over in the 8th the score was 13-4 and the outcome was no longer in doubt. LA banged out 17 hits with Ron Fairly being the only regular not to reach base safely via the bat. Willie Davis went 4 for 6 with 3 runs scored and 3 runs knocked in. Frank Howard and Daryl Spencer each had 4 RBI's and a homer. Spencer was 3 for 4 and Howard was 2 for 5. Wills only had a 1 for 6 day, but that didn't seem to matter one bit. For their part the San Fran offense had 10 hits, but couldn't seem to string them all together like LA did. Mays did have a homer and 2 hits on the day in a losing cause.
Dodgers lead series 2-0
