The Braves play a total of eight interleague series (20 total interleague games), with four series (10 games) taking place at Turner Field. The Braves' home interleague portion of the 2015 campaign opens with a two-game series against the Tampa Bay Rays, May 19-20, and also includes a weekend series against the New York Yankees, August 28-30. The Braves will also play host to the Boston Red Sox (June 17-18) and the Toronto Blue Jays (September 15-17).
