The Phillies are back on Saturday, May 26 when they travel to St. Louis to take on the reigning World Champion Cardinals. The primetime schedule, which includes four Interleague dates, continues into June and culminates on Saturday, July 7 with a classic New York Yankees - Red Sox matchup in Fenway, while the Atlanta Braves play the Phillies and the Minnesota Twins take on the American League Champion Texas Rangers.

"We're pleased that we were able work with our partners at Major League Baseball to develop our most extensive primetime schedule yet," said FOX Sports Co-President and COO Eric Shanks.
