Go ahead and start your road trip planning now. The Phillies have joined the rest of Major League Baseball in unveiling their 2013 schedule, which will commence in Atlanta on April 1, 2013. As previsouly reported, the Phillies will open their home schedule at Citizens Bank Park against the Kansas City Royals on April 5. This year's schedule will feature one inter-league series being played every day of the season thanks to MLB's brilliant idea to create leagues with an odd-number of teams.

April is loaded with NL East games against Atlanta (3), the Mets (6) and Marlins (3) and will end with another inter-league match-up on the road at Cleveland.

In May the Phillies make their first west coast road trip with three games in San Francisco (chilly) and Arizona before returning home for two more games against the Indians. The end of May will be highlighted by a split four game series with the Boston Red Sox, with two games in Boston followed by two games in Philadelphia. This schedule is just a joke and we haven't even hit June.

The Phillies will have a ten game road trip in June, starting in Milwaukee and moving to Minnesota and Colorado. Later in the month the Phillies return to the west coast with three games in San Diego and four more in Los Angeles against the Dodgers. The road trip wraps up with three games in Pittsburgh after a day off in July. The Phillies end the first half of the season with a ten-game home stand against Atlanta, Washington and the Chicago... White Sox. That's right, the Phillies will play four inter-league series before playing the Chicago Cubs. This is what inter-league has done to baseball people.

After the All-Star Game (hosted by the Mets), the Phillies hit the road for ten games (again) with games at the Mets, St. Louis and the Detroit Tigers. The month of August features 16 home games against San Francisco, Atlanta, the Chicago Cubs, the Dodgers, Colorado and Arizona. Road games will also be played in Washington, Atlanta, the Mets and the Cubs.

Then we get to September, which appears to be very favorable to the Phillies. Between September 2 and September 22 the Phillies will play 15 home games against the Nationals, Braves, Padres and Marlins. The Phillies end the season with road games at Miami and Atlanta but that September schedule looks to play in favor of the Phillies during what could be a postseason push.
