ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals will host their oldest rival in their 2012 home opener.

The Cardinals said Wednesday their first home game next season will be April 13 against the Chicago Cubs. It will be the latest home opener in St. Louis since the Cardinals opened on April 19, 1991, against Philadelphia.

Interleague games include a home stand June 8-17 against Cleveland, the Chicago White Sox and Kansas City.

In an oddity, division rival Houston plays in St. Louis only twice next season, and the first series with the Astros at Busch Stadium isn’t until Aug. 21-23. The Reds only play two series in St. Louis as well — during the opening home stand and for the final three games of the season, Oct. 1-3.
