More likely it's pure coincidence. But tonight when Sandy Koufax takes the mound for the Los Angeles Dodgers against the New York Mets, it will be exactly a year to the day mat the brilliant left-hander won his last game of the 1962 season. That was the night the Dodgers lost the pennant. It happened right here at the Polo. Grounds. Although grimacing with pain at every pitch, Koufax managed to blank the Mets with just three hits through seven innings. By that time, the index finger of his pitching hand had become so numb and blue he had to quit. The circulation had stopped completely. "It was my 14th victory," Koufax recalled today. "I was on the way to my best year in baseball. But it turned out to be my saddest. I didn't win another game all year. "Worse than that, there were a few terrifying months last yeai when I feared I might nevei be able to pitch again." It's just a short year but i seems like an eternity ago. To night, Koufax will be gunning fo his 15th victory of the new season He has lost only three. Eight o his triumphs have >been shutouts He has an outside chance o matching Graver Alexander's ma jor league record of 16 shutouts in a single season. Koufax is well aware tha people have been saying he could be the first 30-game winner since Dizzy Dean 30 years ago. "I can't put a number on it,' he said. "I don't dare. I've alwayf wanted to win 20. It's sort of a magic number just like a .300 average is for hitters. "I came close two years ago winning 18. I thought sure I'd make it last year but I didn't Now I've got another chance foi 20. If I get any more, fine;' bu I'm not even thinking of 30."
