St. Louis Cardinals 2018 Schedule

The 2018 schedule will begin for the St. Louis Cardinals on Thursday, March 29th in New York against the Mets as the team will open with a six-game road trip to start the season. It is the earliest date to start the season in franchise history.

Following their three games against the Mets at Citi Field, the Cardinals will conclude that opening road trip in Milwaukee before arriving at Busch Stadium on Thursday, April 5 against the Arizona Diamondbacks as part of a six-game opening home stand with Arizona and Milwaukee.

Twenty interleague games will feature the Cardinals playing two-game home-and-home series against the Chicago White Sox (May 1-2 at Busch Stadium & July 10-11 in Chicago) and the Minnesota Twins (May 7-8 at Busch Stadium & May 15-16 at Minnesota).  They will play a three game home-and-home series against Kansas City (May 21-23 at Busch Stadium & Aug. 10-12 at Kansas City).

The Cardinals will also host Cleveland for a three game series and travel to Detroit for three games.

The longest home stands of the 2018 season each consist of seven games (six times) and the Cardinals longest road trips are a pair of nine-gamers (July 2-11 & August 3-12).  St. Louis will host a three-game series with Cincinnati (July13-15) prior to the July 16-18 Major League Baseball All-Star break.

And for the first time since 1991, the Cardinals will close their 2018 schedule with a three-game series Sept. 28-30 at Wrigley Field against the Chicago Cubs.
