They count in the teams overall won-loss record just like all in-league games.

That is the record of the team in interleague games.

Regular season baseball games between the American League and National League are called interleague games. The first interleague games occurred in 1998 and have been a staple of the MLB schedule since. In 2013 the leagues were balanced to have 15 teams each (the Houston Astros switched from the National League to the American League) which necessitated interleague games throughout the season. Before 2013 interleague games typically happened in concentrated pockets during June and July.

Every American League team is scheduled to play 18 interleague games. Since there are two more National League teams than American League teams, during interleague play, 2 NL teams must play each other. 18 interleague games means 6 series. So, 12 teams from the NL will play another team from the NL for 1 series out of the 6 that are played. With 16 teams in the NL, 4 will play all 6 series. So, to answer your question, every AL team and 4 NL teams are scheduled to play 18 interleague games, and the remaining 12 NL teams are scheduled to play 15 interleague games.

Since interleague play began in 1997, the St. Louis Cardinals and the Chicago White Sox have played 18 times. The Cardinals have won 10 of the games.

Not in the 2008 season. Interleague games for the Yankees are 6 with the Mets and 3 each with the Astros, Padres, Reds, and Pirates. ---- In 2010, the Yankees played the Diamondbacks from June 21-23 in Arizona, as part of their interleague schedule. ---- In 2013, the two teams played their interleague series in New York (April 16-18).

It depends on the division, in the AL east each of the five teams plays the other four in their division 18 times, for a total of 72 games. So in the AL east they play a total of 90 games outside their division. In divisions with only four teams, they play each other 20 times for a total of 60 in the division and 102 games out. When there are six teams in a division they play a total of 15 games against each of the five other team in their division, for 75 games in and 78 out of their division.

Interleague play didn't start until 1997 so they've only played 86 games after the 2011 series. The Angels won 50 of those 86 games: LAA 50 (.581) LAD 36 (.419) Interleague play overall: LAA 151-114 (.570) LAD 109-128 (.460)

So "interleague play" isn't daily and every team can play a game. Otherwise, there would either be one team from each league that doesn't play or an odd number of interleague games would occur.There are 30 teams. If the two leagues were equal, they would each have an odd number of teams. Then you would have to have at least one interleague series going on at any given time, which would make scheduling a nightmare.CorrectionThe above s are good in theory, however, the NL has 16 teams and the AL teams have 14 teams because in 1998 the Milwaukee Brewers agreed to move from the AL Central to the NL Central so each team league wouldn't have 15 teams, causing 1 team to have to be idle every day, extending out the season and making travel and scheduling much more difficult. Before 1998 which is when the addition of the Arizona Diamondbacks to the NL and Tampa Bay Rays to the AL took place, each league had 14 teams, and this wasnt a problem. The move of the Brewers had nothing to do with "interleague play", as "interleague play started in 1997 and the change took place in 1998.Actually the change had everything to do with interleague play. With 15 teams in each league, there would have had to have been at least one interleague series going on at all times. MLB didn't want that. They only wanted interleague to happen during the middle of the season. The fact that interleague play had already started is irrelevant.
