Giants look to sweep three-game series from Dodgers

Apr 26, 2007 - 2:34 PM San Francisco (11-8) at LA Dodgers (13-8) 10:10 pm EDT

LOS ANGELES (Ticker) -- Brad Penny seeks his fourth win of the season when he takes the mound for the Los Angeles Dodgers against the San Francisco Giants on Thursday.

Penny (3-0, 1.37 ERA) is aiming to become the first Dodger to start since Kaz Ishii won his first six decisions in 2002.

In his last start against Pittsburgh on Saturday, Penny gave up two earned runs over six innings but did not factor in the decision.

The Dodgers are hoping for a big effort from Penny as they try to avoid a three-game sweep.

With slugger Barry Bonds' 741st career homer on Wednesday, the Giants posted a 6-4 triumph to extend their winning streak to seven games for the first time since June of 2004.

It was his seventh blast of the season for Bonds, who now trails Hall of Famer Hank Aaron's all-time mark by 14 homers.

Russ Ortiz (2-1, 4.35) take the ball for San Francisco. The righthander was impressive in his last start, giving up just two runs in seven innings for a 4-2 over Arizona last Friday.

On April 7, Ortiz surrendered three runs and seven hits in a 4-1 setback against the Dodgers. He is 8-9 lifetime against the Dodgers.
