White Sox 2018 schedule features early, late meetings with Cubs

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The White Sox will be right back at Kauffman Stadium to open the 2018 season.

The club’s 2018 schedule was released on Tuesday morning. The White Sox open the season with a seven-day, six-game road trip to Kansas City and Toronto. They will open on March 29 against the Royals.

The team’s home opener is April 5 against the Detroit Tigers.

The White Sox and Cubs square off twice for a total of six games. Both series are on weekends with the Cubs hosting May 11-13 and the White Sox at home from September 21-23.

Whereas the White Sox had five different three-city road trips in 2017, they will only have two such trips next season. They travel to Texas, Cincinnati and Houston from June 29-July 8. There’s also a Kansas City-Baltimore-Cleveland trip from September 10-20.

The White Sox play 14 of 17 games at home from June 11-28. The club’s longest homestand is a 10-game stretch against Boston, Detroit and the Los Angeles Angels from August 30-September 9.

The White Sox end the 2018 season on the road with a three-game series at Minnesota from September 28-30.
