The San Franciso Giants’ 0-3 home start is not their worst ever … yet

The San Francisco lost on Wednesday … again. It was their sixth straight loss, their third straight at home.

Fans at AT&T Park haven’t been able to cheer a win in 2015. And you’re probably wondering if their 0-3 start the Giants’ worst home start ever.

Well, the answer is no. In fact, it’s not even the worst start in their current home park.

Back in 2000, the opening season in the Giants’ home by the bay — then Pacific Bell Park — the Giants opened the home season by being swept by the Dodgers in three games.

Then the Giants lost two more to the Arizona Diamondbacks to end their first homestand of the year at 0-5.

They went on the road, came back and lost to the Montreal Expos, pushing their home record to 0-6.

The Giants won their first game at Pacific Bell Park on April 29.

So let’s hope the 2015 Giants aren’t looking for their first home win on April 29.

But, again, here’s a silver lining.

The 2000 Giants rebounded from the poor home start to win 97 games and the National League West Division championship.
