  • September 9 - A duel between the Los Angeles Dodgers' Sandy Koufax and Bob Hendley of the Chicago Cubs was perfect until Dodger left fielder Lou Johnson walked in the fifth inning. Following a sacrifice bunt, Johnson stole third base and scored on a throwing error by Cubs catcher Chris Krug. Johnson later had the game's only hit, a 7th-inning single. Koufax's fourth no-hitter in four years is a perfect game, just the only in Dodgers history. One hit by two clubs in a completed nine-inning game is also a major league record, as is the one runner left on base. The two base runners in a game is a ML record. For Chicago pitchers, it was the second one-hitter they've threw against the Dodgers this year and lost.
  • October 7 - Jim Kaat gives Minnesota a 2-0 World Series lead by driving in two runs, defeating Sandy Koufax and the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 at Minnesota's Metropolitan Stadium. The game is remembered for Minnesota's Bob Allison sliding remarkable catch in the wet grass of Metropolitan Stadium.
