Under dark skies which required the lights to be on for the entire game the Twins win game 2 of the World Series when Jim Kaat beats Sandy Koufax 5-1 in front of 48,700 delirious fans at the Met. In addition to pitching a complete game, Kaat was one for four with the bat knocking in two runs. Bob Allison makes a fantastic catch sliding across the left field line and to this day this is one of the finest fielding plays ever seen in a World Series. Box score
