The Twins will play 76 games against the AL Central in 2015, and another 20 against the NL Central, the team and Major League Baseball announced Monday.
The 2015 season will open in Detroit on Monday, April 6, and the first game at Target Field will be one week later, on April 13 at 3:10 p.m. against the Royals, according to the Twins' preliminary schedule.
Minnesota's annual home-and-home series against Milwaukee will be three-game series played on weekends next season, rather than the midweek two-game sets that the natural rivals have played the past two years. The Brewers visit Target Field on June 5-7, while the Twins travel to Milwaukee on June 26-28.
The Twins will visit four of the five NL Central cities, missing only Wrigley Field in Chicago. In addition to Milwaukee, the Twins will play at PNC Park in Pittsburgh on May 19 and 20; at Busch Stadium in St. Louis (for the first time since 2009) on June 15 and 16; and at Cincinnati's Great American Ball Park on June 29-July 1.
Besides the Brewers, NL Central teams coming to Target Field include the Cardinals on June 17-18; the Cubs on June 19-21; and the Pirates on July 28-29.
For the third straight season, the New York Yankees will visit Minnesota in July; in 2015, the dates are July 24-26. The Red Sox are at Target Field on May 25-27. The Twins close the 2015 regular season at home on Oct. 4 against the Royals.
