The Philadelphia Phillies dropped their MLB Opening Weekend series against the Atlanta Braves. Rob Thomson and the defending National League runner-up squad entered the month of April sticking to their goal of avoiding the sluggish starts that have plagued them the past two seasons.

Phillies April Schedule 

Pray for no rainouts. The Phillies April schedule includes three remaining home series at Citizens Bank Park against opponents projected to finish toward the bottom the the MLB standings in 2024.

The home game promotions will come out in full force, as the fan base has reignited the same atmosphere at Citizens Bank Park that made the Phillies the talk of the town from 2007-2011.

They’ll follow up the homestand in Philadelphia with three series on the road. The first comes in a rematch against the Cincinnati Reds. The next two will come on the West Coast in start times that stretch a little past the bedtimes of an East Coast fan base.

Phillies in 2024

Zack Wheeler has come out of the gates strong in 2024. He looks like the NL Cy Young candidate that the Phillies hoped he’d be when they handed him a lucrative offseason contract. 

The loss of Spencer Strider raises some major question marks about the NL East favorite Braves. Do the Fightin’ Phils now have an advantage over the original favorite in the division race?

The Phillies April schedule hasn’t brought out the strongest offensive performances so far. However, a potent lineup with studs like Bryce Harper, Kyle Schwarber, and Trea Turner has plenty of potential to explode at a monent’s notice.

  • Pittsburgh Pirates: April 11-14 at Citizens Bank Park

    The Phillies will face their long-lost cross-state rivals at Citizens Bank Park for a four-game set beginning on Thursday, April 11. While modern Philadelphia fans think of the Mets and the Braves as the chief rivals, the old NL East battles of the 1970s went much differently.

    Pittsburgh vs. Philadelphia series always draw overlapping fan bases because of the history between the two sports cities and the general proximity in Pennsylvania, especially for weekend series.

    DJ Jazzy Jeff will highlight the weekend with a postgame party on Friday, April 12.

  • Colorado Rockies: April 15-17 at Citizens Bank Park

    The Rockies don’t look like much of a threat in the NL West, but the weekday series includes some major landmarks.

    April 15 is Jackie Robinson Day across Major League Baseball. The baseball pioneer broke the color barrier 77 years ago, and big leaguers appropriately honor his legacy with the number 42 on their backs each year on April 15.

    Tuesday, April 16 is the first Hatfield Phillies Franks BOGO Night. Regardless of how you feel about Dollar Dog Night, you’ll still save a few bucks on ballpark dogs. 

    It’s also the return of Jake Cave to Citizens Bank Park.

  • Chicago White Sox: April 19-21 at Citizens Bank Park

    The White Sox are the final opponents of a favorable homestand against teams projected to finish toward the bottom of the standings. The Phillies have struggled in the early months of the past two seasons. They’ll have an opportunity to gain momentum and padding in the standings.

    Chicago unfortunately lost center fielder Luis Robert Jr. to a long-term injury, costing the Citizens Bank Park crowd their chance to watch the budding star.

  • Cincinnati Reds: April 22-25 at Great American Ballpark

    The Phillies dropped two games of a three-game set against the Cincinnati Reds at Citizens Bank Park in the second series of the regular season. They’ll travel to Ohio hungry to face Elly De La Cruz after the phenom shortstop kicked a few errors under sloppy conditions in Philadelphia.

    Bryce Harper feasted off Cincinnati pitching in the only victory of the series. He’ll look to repeat the success at Great American Ballpark.

  • San Diego Padres: April 26-28 at Petco Park

    Prepare for late nights. Watch the Phillies after dark when a six-game West Coast trip kicks off in San Diego on April 26. The weekend set won’t spark quite the same excitement as the 2022 NLCS, but you’ll probably catch a few highlights of one of the most memorable series in Phillies history.

    The Padres dealt Juan Soto to the New York Yankees during the offseason. Their roster still features some of the best firepower in the league, however. Manny Machado, Xander Bogaerts, and Fernando Tatis Jr. highlight a stacked lineup.

  • Los Angeles Angels: April 29-May 1 at Angel Stadium

    Mike Trout will naturally own the headlines. However, former Phillies prospects Mickey Moniak and Logan O’Hoppe also provide interesting storylines two years removed from the series of deals that brought Brandon Marsh to Philadelphia.
