Harry How

The Dodgers in 2014 will open their season in Australia and will also make interleague trips to Detroit, Kansas City, Minnesota and Anaheim.

The Dodgers on Tuesday announced their schedule for the 2014 season, which will begin domestically on Monday, March 31 against the Padres in San Diego.

But that won't be the first regular season game for the Dodgers, who will play the Diamondbacks for two games at Sydney Cricket Ground in Australia on Saturday and Sunday, March 22-23. Those will be the first two regular season games played by the Dodgers outside North America.

The National League West will battle the American League Central in interleague play this season, accounting for 16 of the 20 interleague opponents. The Dodgers will also play the Angels two games at Dodger Stadium on Aug. 4-5 and two games in Anaheim on Aug. 6-7. Here are the 2014 interleague dates:

  • Angels: two games at Dodger Stadium on Aug. 4-5, two in Anaheim on Aug. 6-7
  • Tigers: come to Dodger Stadium on April 8-9, and the two meet in Detroit on July 8-9 (last matchup was in 2011, last in Detroit in 2008)
  • Indians: in Los Angeles June 30-July 2 (last in 2008, last in Cleveland in 2003)
  • Royals: in Kansas City June 23-25 (last in 2005, last at Dodger Stadium in 2003)
  • Twins: in Minnesota April 29-May 1 (last in 2011, last at Dodger Stadium in 2005)
  • White Sox: in Los Angeles June 2-4 (last in 2012, last in Chicago in 2011)

The Giants come to Dodger Stadium 10 times next season (April 4-6, May 8-11, Sept. 22-24), including the home opener on Friday, April 4. The Dodgers play nine times at AT&T Park in San Francisco (April 15-17, July 25-27, Sept. 12-14).

The 2014 MLB All-Star Game will be played on Tuesday, July 15 at Target Field in Minnesota. The Dodgers will play 97 games before the break and 65 games after it. They open up the unofficial second half with a nine-game road trip in St. Louis, Pittsburgh and San Francisco.

The Dodgers close their season with a weekend series at home against the Rockies from Sept. 26-28, part of a six-game homestand.
