No, the 1996 Yankees are the only team to ever lose the first 2 World Series games at home and then sweep the next 4 games to win the Series in 6. The 1985 Royals and 1986 Mets both lost the first 2 World Series games at home and came back to win the Series, but they both needed a game 7. Both teams were losing going into their final at bat in Game 6, but came back to win it, thanks partially to a memorable play at first base. For the Royals it was an incorrect call by umpire Don Denkinger. For the Mets it was a ground ball that went through Bill Buckner's legs. The 1978 Yankees were the first team to lose the first 2 World series games and then sweep the next 4 -- but their first 2 losses were on the road (in Los Angeles). like two
