The Giants are off to a 6-13 start, tied for the worst in franchise history.
Giants first 19 games going 6-13
Not a great start and not a great ending for every year but one
In 1951, the Giants started 6-13.
In 1951, the Dodgers started 10-9.
But at the end of the 1951 season, after a one-game playoff, the Giants’ famed announcer Russ Hodges shouted as loudly as a shot heard ’round the world:
“There’s a long drive … it’s gonna be, I believe … The Giants win the pennant! The Giants win the pennant! The Giants win the pennant! The Giants win the pennant! Bobby Thomson hits into the lower deck of the left-field stands! The Giants win the pennant and they’re going crazy! They’re going crazy!
I don’t believe it! I don’t believe it! I do not believe it! Bobby Thomson hit a line drive into the lower deck of the left-field stands and this blame place is going crazy! The Giants! Horace Stoneham has got a winner! The Giants won it by a score of 5 to 4, and they’re picking Bobby Thomson up, and carrying him off the field!”
