Padres release 2013 schedule, first time Yankees visit included

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The San Diego Padres announced their preliminary schedule Wednesday for the 2013 season, including the New York Yankees' first visit to Petco Park and an April 9 home opener against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Yankees will play at Petco Park Aug. 2-4 in their first appearance in San Diego since a three-game series in 2002 in the Padres' former home, Qualcomm Stadium.

The 81-game home schedule includes seven other interleague games -- May 29-30 against the Seattle Mariners, May 31-June 2 against the Toronto Blue Jays and Aug. 6-7 against the Baltimore Orioles.

The shift of the Houston Astros to the American League creating two 15-team leagues will cause interleague play to be spread throughout the season for the first time.

The Padres will open their season April 1 against the New York Mets at Citi Field.

The official schedule will be announced after the conclusion of the 2012 season.

Each team will play 19 games against divisional opponents, six or seven games against non-divisional league opponents and 20 interleague games.
