Giants announce tentative 2014 season schedule
Share This Post

SAN FRANCISCO -- As disappointing as this season has been for the Giants, it’s curious to note that they haven’t been outclassed by NL West foes.

In fact, their 36-28 record is the best within their division.

So maybe it’s a good thing that the Giants will begin the 2014 season with 22 consecutive games against NL West teams. In the master schedule announced Tuesday, the Giants will open the season with a seven-game road trip to Arizona’s Chase Field and Dodger Stadium, with a March 31 opener against the Diamondbacks.

Their home opener, also against the Diamondbacks, is scheduled for April 8. It’ll kick off a nine-game homestand that also includes visits from the Colorado Rockies and Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Giants finish the season with 15 out of 25 games on the road in September, ending Sept. 25-28 with a four-game home series against the San Diego Padres.

The Giants are just 5-12 in interleague play this season with one more series looming at Yankee Stadium. They’ll need to do better than that against the AL Central next season. They’ll face all five teams in that division, including a pair of two-game series with the Chicago White Sox (June 17-18 at Chicago and Aug. 12-13 at AT&T Park). The Giants play host to the Cleveland Indians (April 25-27) and Minnesota Twins (May 23-25) while traveling to play at Kansas City (Aug. 8-10) and Detroit (Sept. 5-7).

The Giants will be tested on a pair of 10-game road trips (May 2-11 at Atlanta, Pittsburgh and Los Angeles) and Aug. 1-10 (at the New York Mets, Milwaukee and Kansas City).

The 2014 major league season will begin March 22-23 when the Dodgers and Diamondbacks meet in baseball’s first-ever games in Sydney, Australia.
