A's tough times at home continue vs. Red Sox

1 min read

OAKLAND — Given the typical home-field success experienced by A’s clubs even in down years over the past decade, manager Mark Kotsay had reason to chalk up his team’s inauspicious start at home this season to it being a small sample size.

The calendar has now flipped to June, but the troubling trend at home remains.

Falling to the Red Sox, 7-2, in Friday night’s series opener at the Coliseum, the A’s have dropped 18 of their last 21 games in Oakland. Now holding an MLB-worst 7-21 record at home, the A’s are off to their worst start through the first 28 home games of a season in Oakland history. Since 1901, there have been only two instances in which the club had such a rough beginning at home, once each when the club was located in Philadelphia and Kansas City.
