Sox Beat Dodgers, 1-0

Oct. 7, 1959, Cover  

Oct. 7, 1959: Hold off on that victory parade. The White Sox extended the World Series to at least Game 6 by edging the Dodgers, 1-0, before yet another record crowd in the Coliseum.

Sandy Koufax gave up the game's only run on a double play ball after two singles. The teams headed back to Chicago for Game 6 and if needed, Game 7.

The 92,706 fans in attendance merited another traffic story, and The Times discovered that fans behave better when their team wins. "As it had on Monday, it again took an hour and a half—unless one had exceptional luck—to get from the Coliseum to the Civic Center," wrote Art Ryon. "But yesterday there was more impatient horn-honking, more verbal snarls in the snarled traffic."
