    • QUOTES (3)

      • (on starter Johnny Podres coming out of the game with one out in the ninth)
        Los Angeles Manager Walt Alston: I hated to take him out, but I'd rather bring in a fresh man.
        Los Angeles Starter Johnny Podres: I'd liked to have finished out, but I don't want to be a hero, just win the game.
        Los Angeles Starter Johnny Podres: I told the skipper I was tired and we had Ron Perranoski in the bullpen. Sure, I'd like another shutout but there's no sense fooling myself when we've got the greatest relief pitcher in baseball.

      • Los Angeles First Baseman and Former Yankee Bill Skowron: I really wanted to have a big Series. The Dodgers have been good to me and I want to stay with them. I never expected to be left in for all of the first two games. They'd been taking us out for defensive purposes when I started during the season.

      • (on Johnny Podres)
        New York Left Fielder Tom Tresh: Podres doesn't have anywhere the stuff that (Game 1 winner Sandy) Koufax has. But he's a good, smart pitcher and he mixed his pitches real well.
