White Sox 2013 schedule

The White Sox will open and close the 2013 season at home against the improved Kansas City Royals, and they’ll play the Cubs in four consecutive games against in late May.

Those are two of the highlights from next season’s tentative schedule released on Wednesday.

The Cubs-Sox series will be short and sweet. Two games will be played at U.S. Cellular Field on May 27-28 and two at Wrigley Field on May 29-30.

The opener is April 1 at home, and the season concludes in late September with four home games against the Royals, who improved their pitching staff with offseason additions of pitchers James Shields, Wade Davis and Ervin Santana.

Interleague play includes April 9-11 dates at the Washington Nationals, and the Sox play a home-and-home series against the New York Mets and visit the Philadelphia Phillies on July 12-14 prior to the All-Star break. The Sox host the Atlanta Braves on July 19-21.

The Sox play the Brewers at Milwaukee’s Miller Park in two exhibition games on March 29-30.

The Sox close their season at home on Sept. 26-29 against the Royals.
