Yikes! Game 1 Road Losses


Road Team Loses Game 1 since 1982 (1-15)

Won World Series
1992 Blue Jays

Lost World Series
1987 Cardinals
1988 A's
1989 Giants
1990 A's
1991 Braves
1993 Phillies
1995 Indians
1997 Indians
1998 Padres
2000 Mets
2001 Yankees
2004 Cardinals
2005 Astros
2007 Rockies
2010 Rangers

Update: The Rangers might just pull this off, after a thrilling Game 2 victory where they came from behind in the 9th innings to win (first time that's happened since Game 7 of the 2001 World Series).  At the very least, it appears that this World Series has a good shot at going at least 6 (and hopefully 7) games.

How many of the teams that lost game 1 came back to win Game 2?
1993 Phillies
1997 Marlins
