The Washington Nationals open next season on the road for almost a week.
A six-game road trip starts March 29 in Cincinnati, then heads to Atlanta. The home opener at Nationals Park will be April 5 against the New York Mets.
The New York Yankees (May 15-16), Boston Red Sox (July 2-4), Tampa Bay Rays (June 5-6), and Baltimore Orioles (June 19-21) come to the District for interleague play.
The Nationals will also host the All-Star Game next season on July 17.
Twenty-seven of the Nationals’ final 40 games will come against divisional foes. The Nationals will have all of their visits from the National League West teams completed by June 10, and an entire homestand in September (Aug. 31-Sept.9) featuring exclusively the National League Central (Brewers, Cardinals, Cubs). The Nationals will conclude the 2018 home slate with a six-game homestand against the Mets and Marlins (Sept. 20-26), and will finish out the regular season with a three-game road trip to Colorado.
Washington won the National League East Division again on Sunday. It will be going to the playoffs as the division champion for the fourth time in six seasons.
