Belt jokes that he'll hit 74 HRs

When you're going good, it's easy to kid around. Belt is on fire. He's got 3 HRs in the first 4 games 

Belt and Pagan have been belting, as the Chronicle's Henry Schulman points in his game story after the glorious 8-5 vic --

Several Giants accomplished a lot in Phoenix.
Pagan went 8-for-19 with inspired defense. In the eighth inning Thursday, which began with Arizona leading 5-3, Pagan stepped in with two outs and two on after a Hector Sanchez RBI double and Michael Morse's pinch single, which tied the game.
Pagan jacked Will Harris' first-pitch fastball into the pool area in right-center for his first homer of the year, the Giants' sixth of the series and an 8-5 lead.
Seven innings earlier, Brandon Belt had taken Bronson Arroyo deep for his third homer in the first four games. The only other San Francisco players to do that were Willie Mays (three times), Barry Bonds and Kevin Mitchell - all Most Valuable Players.
"Pretty cool," Belt said. With his nicely developing sense of humor, he added, "I'm looking to beat all their home run records. I said going into the season I was going to hit 74 home runs. I'm sticking with that right now."
