Phillies to open '15 at home vs. Red Sox

PHILADELPHIA -- The Phillies are scheduled to open the 2015 regular season at home against Shane Victorino and the Red Sox on April 6 at Citizens Bank Park.

It is the first time the Phillies are opening a season at home since 2011.

The Phillies finish the 162-game schedule on Oct. 4 at home against the Marlins. They play their final 18 games against National League East rivals.

The Phillies host the Red Sox (April 6-9), Orioles (June 17-18), Rays (July 20-22) and Blue Jays (Aug. 18-19) in Interleague Play. They travel to the Orioles (June 15-16), Yankees (June 22-24), Blue Jays (July 28-29) and Red Sox (Sept. 4-6).

Phillies fans are always looking for a good road trip. A West Coast swing against the Dodgers (July 6-9) and Giants (July 10-12) immediately before the All-Star break would be a good one to catch. A weekend at Wrigley Field against the Cubs (July 24-26) is always a winner. Fenway Park is always a popular destination.

The Phillies will spend the majority of June at home (16 home games, 11 away), while spending most of May (13 home, 16 away) and July (10 home, 15 away) on the road.
