Dodgers release preliminary 2013 schedule.

The Dodgers revealed a preliminary 2013 schedule today.

The team will open the season at home with Opening Day slated for Monday, April 1 against the San Francisco Giants, and end the season at home with three straight games against Colorado.

Interleague Play will be spread throughout the regular season for the first time as the Boston Red Sox visit from Friday, Aug. 23 to Sunday Aug. 25; the Angels on May 27 and May 28; the Tampa Bay Rays from Friday, Aug. 9-Sunday, Aug. 11. The Yankees played at Dodger Stadium in 2004 and 2010, the Red Sox made their only trip in 2002 and the Rays have never been to Chavez Ravine.

For their road Interleague dates in 2013, the Dodgers will travel to Camden Yards (April 19-21), Angel Stadium (May 29-30), Yankee Stadium (June 18-19) and the Rogers Centre in Toronto (July 22-24). This season will mark the Dodgers’ first game in the Bronx since winning Game 6 of the 1981 World Series at Yankee Stadium on October 28, 1981. The two-game series will also be the first-ever regular season matchup between the Dodgers and Yankees at (New) Yankee Stadium.
