Still in contention for an American League wild card berth this season, the Mariners Monday announced their tentative regular-season schedule for 2015, which begins with a three-game series against the Los Angeles Angels April 6 at Safeco Field. The 1:10 p.m. opener will be the first season-opening day game since 2010 and the first time the Mariners have opened at home since 2008.
The opening homestand covers only the Angels series. That will be followed by a six-game trip to Oakland for three against the Athletics (April 10-12) and three against the Los Angeles Dodgers (April 13-15).
The Mariners will play nine-game home stands in April and May, followed by an 11-game homestand in June. Seattle will play a four-game series against the Boston Red Sox (May 14-17) and a three-game set against the New York Yankees (June 1-3).
Interleague games against the National League West next season includes Safeco Field contests against the San Diego Padres (May 12-13), San Francisco Giants (June 17-18), Arizona Diamondbacks (July 27-29), and Colorado Rockies (September 11-13).
The schedule with start times will not be finalized until January.
