San Francisco overcame a superlative game from Sandy Koufax to beat Los Angeles, 2-1. Koufax threw 7 innings of 3-hit ball but control issues led him to being lifted in the 8th inning after walking Danny O'Connell.

Willie Mays, who is a four-time All-Star, would then face Dodger reliever Clem Labine and deliver a dramatic 2-run home run in the bottom of the eighth. For the game, the center fielder had 2 hits in 4 at-bats with 1 home run, 1 single, 1 run scored, and 2 RBI.

"Runs were at a premium," said San Francisco manager Bill Rigney The Giants go to 2-1 on the season and now trail the Cardinals and the Phillies by a half game.


The Giants will travel to Los Angeles next to start another three game series with the Dodgers. Johnny Antonelli is expected to start for the Giants while the Dodgers will counter with Don Newcombe
