The Astros, who have won seven consecutive games on Opening Day, will look to keep that streak alive next year against the Angels, who will be in Houston on March 26 to kick-start the 2020 season. Major League Baseball released the schedules for all teams on Monday.

After playing host to the Angels for four games to start their 59th season, the Astros will hit the road and play 12 of their next 14 games away from home. The only two home games during that stretch will be an Interleague matchup against the Mets, April 7-8.

The Astros play the National League East in Interleague Play next year, which means visits from the Mets and Phillies (July 7-9), who haven’t been to Houston since the Astros’ last year in the NL in 2012. Houston will travel to face the Mets (June 2-3), Nationals (July 3-5) and Braves (Sept. 25-27) in Interleague Play. The Marlins visit Houston Sept. 1-3.

The Astros will resume the Lone Star Series against the Texas Rangers with a three-game series April 10-12 in Houston’s first game at new Globe Life Field, which is set to open next year.

Additional highlights of the 2020 schedule include weekend series visits from the Yankees (May 15-17) and Red Sox (May 29-31). The Astros will finish the season with a seven-game road trip against the Yankees (Sept. 21-24) and Braves.
