Red Sox slated to open 2015 in Philly

TORONTO -- The final version of the 2015 major league schedule is still at least a couple of weeks away, but according to the version currently being reviewed by all 30 teams and subject to revision, the Red Sox will open next season in Philadelphia on April 6 against the National League’s Phillies.

After playing three games against the Phillies, the Sox are scheduled to play three games against the Yankees in New York before heading to Fenway Park to face the Washington Nationals, another National League East team, in their home opener. That game is tentatively scheduled for April 13.

The Sox home opener this season also was against a National League team, the Milwaukee Brewers, who swept three straight from the Sox.

The Sox interleague opponents in 2015 are scheduled to be from the NL East. In June, they are scheduled to have back-to-back home-and-home series against the Braves (two in Boston, two in Atlanta). They are scheduled to play two games at Fenway against the Marlins in July, then go to Miami for two more games (tentatively scheduled for Aug. 11-12).

The Sox are scheduled to go to New York’s CitiField to play the Mets Aug. 28-30, then the Phillies are scheduled for a three-game visit to Boston in early September, which would be the last interleague action of the season for the Sox.

The Yankees’ first visit to Boston is tentatively scheduled for May 1-3. The Orioles are scheduled to be the Marathon weekend opponent in April, while the Sox are tentatively scheduled to end the season Oct. 4 in Cleveland against the Indians.
