The Dodgers will open the 2015 season at Dodger Stadium against the San Diego Padres on April 4, according to a tentative schedule released Monday by Major League Baseball. The game will fall on a Monday.
Following the season-opening, three-game series with the Padres, the Dodgers will visit the Arizona Diamondbacks from April 10-12.
Because the season is starting about a week later than it did this year, it will also end later. The Dodgers' final regular-season game will be Oct. 4, also at Dodger Stadium against the Padres.
The Freeway Series will be uncharacteristically spread out, with the Dodgers hosting the Angels from July 31 to Aug. 2 and visiting Anaheim from Sept. 7-9.
The Dodgers' other interleague games will also be against teams from the American League West: vs. Seattle (April 13-15), at Texas (June 15-16), vs. Texas (June 17-18), vs. Oakland (July 28-29), at Oakland (Aug. 18-19), at Houston (Aug. 21-23).
The Dodgers will host the Mariners on Jackie Robinson Day (April 15) and the New York Mets on the Fourth of July.
The Dodgers' first series against the San Francisco Giants will be on April 21-23 at AT&T Park.
The Dodgers will also face the Giants on their final trip of the season. They will visit the Colorado Rockies from Sept. 25-27 and the Giants from Sept. 28 to Oct. 1.
The stretch after the All-Star break could be particularly challenging for the Dodgers, who will play 10 road games in 10 days. The period starts with a three-game series at Washington (July 17-19), followed by a three-game series at Atlanta (July 20-22) and a four-game series at New York against the Mets (July 23-26).
