Based on the most recent version of the 2015 schedule, the Red Sox will open next season April 6 against the Phillies in Philadelphia followed by a three-game series at Yankee Stadium before playing the Nationals in the home opener April 13, according to an ESPNBoston report. The schedule is being reviewed by all major league teams and could be revised. The Red Sox will play all National League East teams, squaring off against the Braves in back-to-back two-game series in Boston and Atlanta in June, hosting the Marlins in July then playing in Miami in August, and visiting the Mets in late August. The last interleague series would be against the Phillies at Fenway in early September. The Orioles are scheduled to play at Fenway for the annual Patriots' Day game. The Yankees' first visit to Fenway is May 1-3. The Sox close the season Oct. 4 against the Indians in Cleveland.
