The SF Giants schedule has been released for the 2020 season with dates and times revealed.
The Giants will officially kick off their season on the road against the Los Angeles Dodgers on July 23rd in what is set to be a four-game series to begin the year.
However, their home opener isn’t scheduled until July 28th in which they will host the San Diego Padres at Oracle Park followed by a three-game homestand against the Texas Rangers.
As was already known, the Giants will play exclusively teams in the NL and AL West with 40 of their 60 games coming against divisional foes. The remaining 20 will consist of games against AL West opponents.
That includes two separate three-game series against the crosstown Oakland Athletics. They will host the A’s from August 14th to the 16th while they will travel to Oakland from September 18th to the 20th.
The Giants will close their season with a seven-game homestand including a four-game series against the Colorado Rockies followed by a three-game series against the San Diego Padres concluding on September 27th to finish the year.
The SF Giants schedule in 2020 will certainly be unique.
The full slate of games is shown in its entirety below.

One other interesting note is that the Giants will have to wait until August 21st to possibly get their first look at longtime ace Madison Bumgarner and the Arizona Diamondbacks.
However, starting on the 21st, three of the team’s next five series will come against Arizona meaning that they should have multiple opportunities to face Bumgarner.
Expectations are all over the place for the Giants in 2020 with few projecting the team to be competitive at the start of the season. That being said, everything has seemingly changed at this point.
With just a 60-game season, all bets are off as to who can actually make a serious run at the postseason. Baseball is as streaky of a sport as any and as we saw with the Giants last July, all it takes are a few timely hot streaks to turn a bad team into a competitive one.
And if the Giants can get off to a hot start in 2020, there’s no reason they can’t make their return to the postseason this year.
