Diamondbacks to open 2019 home schedule vs. Red Sox, will also host Yankees

The Arizona Diamondbacks will open their 2019 home schedule against Major League Baseball's best team so far in 2018.

The Boston Red Sox, who boast an MLB-best 88-39 record as of Wednesday, will be the D-backs' first home opponent of the 2019 season. The three-game series will take place from April 5-7. It will mark Boston's first visit to Chase Field since 2007.

The D-backs will also host the team they defeated in the 2001 World Series, the New York Yankees, in a two-game set on April 30 and May 1.

The Diamondbacks will open the season with seven games on the road -- a four-game series vs. their division rivals, the Los Angeles Dodgers, from March 28-31, and a three-game set vs. the San Diego Padres from April 1-3.

The Chicago Cubs will visit Chase Field early in the season for a three-game series from April 26-28. Their first home series vs. the Dodgers will take place June 3-5.

The D-backs will conclude the season with six straight home games, vs. the St. Louis Cardinals from Sept. 23-25 and vs. the Padres from Sept. 27-29.
