While the Washington Nationals’ 2014 season is headed for an exciting finish, the Nationals gave fans their first look at the 2015 slate on Monday with the release of next season’s schedule.

San Francisco Giants v Washington NationalsThe Nationals’ 81-game home schedule kicks off with Washington’s 82nd home opener since 1901 on Monday, April 6 vs. the New York Mets and is highlighted by 13 weekend series against, among others, the Phillies (three times), Braves (two times), Cubs, Pirates, Giants, Dodgers and Brewers.

Washington’s 2015 regular season both begins (see above) and concludes (Sunday, October 4 at Citi Field) against the NL East-rival Mets. The Nationals open 2015 by playing an NL East rival in 26 of their initial 32 contests, through May 10, before capping the year with 26 of its final 29 regular-season games against intra-divisional foes, September 3 – October 4.

While 29 of next season’s initial 50 contests will be played on the road, Nationals fans can experience the thrill of pennant-race baseball in the nation’s capital for themselves from August 21 – September 27, when Washington will host 26 games in 38 days within the friendly confines of Nationals Park.

The annual Battle of the Beltways Series between the Nationals and Orioles continues for a tenth consecutive season with both clubs hosting a three-game set. The Nationals welcome the Orioles to D.C. for three games, Sept. 21-23, in the latest Interleague series in the Nationals’ 11 seasons.

The Nationals will also square off with the American League East for 20 Interleague contests in 2015. Washington’s home interleague slate includes visits from the Yankees (two games, May 19-20), the Blue Jays (three games, June 1-3), the Rays (two games, June 17-18) and the aforementioned visit from the Orioles (three games, September 21-23). The Yankees’ visit to The District is their first since sweeping a three-game set at Nationals Park, June 15-17, 2012.

The Nationals will make Interleague road stops in Boston (three games), New York (two), Tampa Bay (two) and Baltimore (three games, July 10-12).

San Francisco Giants v Washington NationalsThe ‘15 home schedule also features the following holiday home games: Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 10 vs. Braves), Father’s Day (Sunday, June 21 vs. Pirates), Independence Day (Saturday, July 4 vs. Giants) and Labor Day (Monday, Sept. 7 vs. Mets).

Of the Nationals’ 12 homestands, only one will last 10 or more games, and Nationals Park will host 10 games in 11 days to close out the home slate from September 17-27 (Marlins, Orioles, Phillies).

September/October (17 games), August (16) and June (15) contain the most home games in a calendar month, while April hosts the fewest (10).

All dates and opponents on this schedule are subject to change.

I do not see the 2015 schedule on the link provided in this email, only the 2014 schedule? Where exactly is the listing of the 2015 schedule by date?

We’re due to play the Yankees in New York, not here.

In DC for the Yankees. Go to the Nationals website

I was wondering how the 2015 interleague slate would be set, now that teams play 20 interleague games, not 18, and next year will be East vs. East, Central vs. Central and West vs. West. So apparently what they’re doing in 2015 where the Nats are concerned is to have them play six vs. Baltimore again (3h/3a), four vs. New York and Tampa Bay (2h/2a), three at home vs. Toronto and three at Boston. (I sort of wish the New England Evil Empire was coming to Nats Park so we could embarrass all those Ivy League government bosses who would pack the ballpark.) I presume the other divisions have similar setups, so once again we’ll have six-game series between the White Sox and Cubs, Mets and Yankees, Angels and Dodgers, Athletics and Giants and so on.

Yes, I think so.
