The Dodgers open their 2013 season against the Giants on Monday, April 1.

MLB on Wednesday announced its preliminary 2013 schedule, and here are the highlights of the Dodgers' slate for next year.

The Dodgers will open at home on Monday, Apr. 1 against the Giants, the second time in three seasons the team has opened at home against San Francisco. After two years of opening the season on a Thursday (with one ESPN Wednesday night game) and ending on a Wednesday, 2013 marks a return for MLB to starting on Monday and ending on Sunday.

The Dodgers end their regular season at home next year against the Rockies on Sept. 29, but that is immediately preceded by a 10-game road trip to Arizona, San Diego, and San Francisco.

With a uniform distribution of teams into six divisions with five teams each, every team will play 19 games against each of the other four divisional foes. The Dodgers will host the Giants 10 times next year, including June 24-26 and Sept. 12-15.

Every MLB team will play either six or seven games against the 10 non-divisional opponents in their league, for a total of 66 games.

The Dodgers have 20 interleague games (as does every MLB team), including two game each at home and on the road against the Yankees. The Dodgers are scheduled to play in The Bronx for the first time ever in the regular season on June 18-19, and will host the Yankees on July 30-31 at Dodger Stadium. The rest of the interleague schedule:

  • Apr. 19-21: at Baltimore
  • May 27-28: vs. Angels
  • May 29-30: at Anaheim
  • July 22-24: at Toronto
  • Aug. 9-11: vs. Tampa Bay
  • Aug. 23-25: vs. Boston

The Dodgers are at home on Jackie Robinson Day (Apr. 15), hosting the Padres.
