The 2013 San Francisco Giants schedule was released by MLB (along with all the other teams) on Wednesday, and the two biggest highlights for the Giants are: opening with the Dodgers and a six-game trip to New York City.
That trip to the Big Apple (oh and hey, did you know the Giants are originally from New York??? You might hear about that when they play there!) will be in September, with the Giants playing the Mets at CitiField on September 17, 18 and 19, and then playing the Yankees on September 20, 21, and 22.
The Giants will open the season against the Dodgers on April 1 in Dodger Stadium, which is sure to be a fired-up rivalry game, what with San Francisco LIKELY to win the division this year and the Dodgers LIKELY to go out and spend piles of money this offseason.
In terms of interleague play, the Giants get a four-game, two-home, two-away series against the Athletics in late May, a two-game series at home against the Blue Jays in early June, a three-game series in Tampa Bay on the first weekend of August, a three-game homestand against the Red Sox later in August, and the Yankees series.
Giants Donate Life Day
The final game of the season will be in September like last year, with the Giants closing out at home with a six-game stand that starts off with the Dodgers from September 24-26 and then ending with the Padres from September 27-29. That's good news.
