1962 WS GAME 2 - Dodgers 4, Angels 0

3 hitter by Koufax
Bo Belinsky vs Sandy Koufax
After being dominated by Drysdale the Angels found themselves staring down the barrel of a loaded gun in the form of Sandy Koufax.  The Dodgers emerging star lefthander, who in the past struggled with his control looks to have put it all together.  Today he flat out dominated going the distance and tossing a 3 hit complete games shutout.  Koufax did walk 4 to make it interesting, but he also fanned 7 including Leon Wagner and Steve Bilko back to back with the bases loaded with no out to get out of a jam in the 3rd.  That would be the Halos best chance to score off the dominating lefty.  Belinsky was keeping pace with Koufax until he allowed a solo run in the 5th when Maury Wills singled home Johnny Roseboro with 2 outs.  Belinsky tired quickly and left after 5 innings of work.  Ken Bowsfield would relieve Belinsky and become a victim of his own poor fielding in the 6th.  After Willie Davis led off with a double, Belinsky booted a grounder back to the box by Tommy Davis to put runners on 2nd and 3rd. Fairly's ground out score 3-Dog and Daryl Spencer's single two batters later scored T.D.  In the 7th catcher Buck Rodgers airmailed his throw while fielding Junior Gilliam's bunt attempt to put runners on 1st and 3rd.  A ground out by Willie Davis scored Maury Wills easily from third to make it 4-0.  The way Koufax was dealing you could have shut your TV set right then and there.  Many fans did and nobody missed anything.
Dodgers lead series 2-0
