Bennington Banner (Newspaper) - October 2, 1963, Bennington, Vermont 8-Bennington Banner wednesday october 2, 1963pitching key to world series As Ford Koufax Duel psychological value High in i first game new York apr pounds of extra world series pressure weighed heavily on the shoulders of opening game pitchers Whitey Ford of new York and Sandy Kou fax of los Angeles today because of unusual importance attached to the first game of the 1963 postseason classic. Most experts agree pitching will be More of a dominating Factor in this series than in any inter league october clash since world War n. They Point to the comparatively Light team batting averages .252 for the Yankees to. 2 51 for the dodgers and the presence of Only three .300 hitters Tommy Davis Maury wills and Mickey Mantle in the lineups. A contributory Factor is the determination of both managers to stick with three starting pitchers regardless of the length of the series. This Means that should the series go seven games As have All since 1955 except the 1959 and around the series beat new York apr How Lucky can you get a year ago right hander Bob Miller was a member of the lowly new York mets and had a 1-12 record with a 4.88 Era. Today the 24-year-old Pitcher from Buena Park calif., is a valued hand of the National league Champion los Angeles dodgers with a 10-8 record and an impressive 2.89 Era. A i said last year that this october id be in Yankee stadium for the world series a he said. A but i thought i d be with the Yankees. In a Happy to be with the dodgers a Trade that came off happily for both parties was the Deal that sent first baseman Moose Skow Ron from th#3 Yankees to the dodgers in Exchange for right hander Stan Williams. After All these years with the Yankees Moose had become accustomed to those fat world series checks almost every fall. 1961 series Ford and Koufax will probably face each other three times. Thus the Winner of the first Ford Koufax Duel a before some 70,000 at Yankee stadium would have a vast psychological Aswell As an actual Edge. The Odds favored Ford at 6-5, with the Yankees a 7 vie to 5 favorite to gain their seventh Triumph in eight world series meetings with the dodgers. The perennial american league champions have a 20-7 record in series play compared to 2-8 for the dodgers. Both clubs presented predominantly right handed line ups against the left handed slants of Ford and Koufax. The Only Southpaw swingers aside from Ford in the Yankee batting order were shortstop Tony Kubek first baseman Joe Pepitone and right fielder Roger Maris. Switch hitters Mickey Mantle and Tommy Tresh naturally batted right handed. At a late hour tuesday night manager Walter Alston of the dodgers had just about decided to keep Ken Mcmullen the injured Rookie third baseman on the Bench playing Dick Tracewski at second and switching Jim Gilliam to third. Mcmullen pulled a hamstring muscle in his right leg last week. Alston promoted Willie Davis the hottest hitting dodger in september from seventh to third spot in the batting order behind Maury wills and Gilliam with Tommy Davis the National league s leading hitter in the cleanup spot. Bill Skowron the sex Yankee was at first base batting sixth behind the right handed hitting Frank Howard. He was followed by Tracewski John Roseboro and Koufax. The Yankees had the same lineup that played All season when Mantle and Maris were in there. Mickey batted fourth behind Tresh and in front of Maris Kubek and Bobby Richardson batted one two with Elston Howard Pepitone Clete Boyer and Ford comprising the Bottom half of the order.
