OAKLAND -- Opening Day 2014 for the A's doesn't include the Seattle Mariners for the first time in five years. It also isn't a team from the AL West.

The A's will have the earliest home opener in their Oakland history when they face the Cleveland Indians on March 31, according to the schedule released Tuesday. But don't worry, the Mariners come in for a four-games series after Cleveland leaves town.

If the A's play like they did last year and this year, September will be a key month in 2014 with 15 games of a 22-game stretch slated for O.Co Coliseum before wrapping up the season with four games in Texas.

For interleague play, the A's will get a heavy dose of the NL East. The Washington Nationals (May 9-11), New York Mets (Aug. 19-20) and Philadelphia Phillies will visit the Coliseum, while the A's will travel to the Mets (24-25), the Miami Marlins (June 27-29) and Atlanta Braves (Aug. 15-17). Of course, there is the four-game home-and-home Bay Bridge Series against the Giants (July 7-10).
