The San Francisco Giants have already won two series from Los Angeles this season and look to continue their success when they visit the Dodgers on Thursday in the opener of a four-game set. San Francisco won two of three in Los Angeles in early April and again in the Bay Area in the middle of the month. The Giants are 4-2 on a 10-game road trip while the Dodgers are opening a seven-game homestand after going 5-4 while visiting Minnesota, Miami and Washington.San Francisco first baseman Brandon Belt homered and had a two-run double for all the team's runs in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Pirates and indicated he's ready for a fierce series with the Dodgers. "I think it's always a little more (intense) when we play L.A.," Belt told reporters. "We're going to be battling it out until the end, so it's one of those series when we want to go in and take as many as we can." Los Angeles got right fielder Yasiel Puig back for Wednesday's loss to Washington - he went 1-for-3 with an RBI - after he missed two games due to a collision with the wall in Miami on Sunday.TV: 10:10 p.m. ET, MLB Network, CSN Bay Area (San Francisco), SportsNet Los AngelesPITCHING MATCHUP: Giants RH Ryan Vogelsong (1-1, 4.60 ERA) vs. Dodgers RH Josh Beckett (0-1, 3.14 ERA)Vogelsong has put together back-to-back strong efforts by allowing one run and seven hits over 13 innings.
