The Los Angeles Dodgers open their 2017 regular season schedule on April 3 at Dodger Stadium for the start of a three-game series against the San Diego Padres. It marks the second consecutive year the Dodgers and Padres have met in an Opening Series.

Los Angeles then heads out for a six-game road trip to face the Colorado Rockies and Chicago Cubs, with a quirk in the schedule providing an off-day after the first game between the Cubs and Dodgers and Wrigley Field.

The 2017 schedule has the Dodgers facing American League Central opponents, on top of the annual Freeway Series. Interleague play for Los Angeles begins June 13 with the start of a three-game road series against the Cleveland Indians.

Los Angeles will host Kansas City Royals and Minnesota Twins. The Dodgers’ first time facing the San Francisco Giants comes April 24 when the rivals open a four-game series at AT&T Park.

San Francisco makes its first visit to Dodger Stadium the following week for a three-game set (May 1-3). The Dodgers’ longest road trip of the season is a 10-game excursion that takes place mid-September.

They have a pair of 10-game homestands — May 18-28 and July 20-30. The Dodgers open the unofficial second half of the season in Miami, the host city for the 2017 All-Star Game.
