While the Giants are still focused on their push for the National League West title, they learned who and where they will play their games next season as Major League Baseball announced the 2013 schedule Wednesday.

The Giants will open the 2013 season on the road against the rival Los Angeles Dodgers on April 2 before coming home April 5 for their home opener at AT&T Park against the St. Louis Cardinals.

San Francisco is set up to play the American League East in interleague play, which will include home and road series against the Toronto Blue Jays, home series against the Boston Red Sox and Baltimore Orioles and road series against the Tampa Bay Rays and New York Yankees.

The Giants will only play the cross-Bay rival A’s four times next year, with the series taking place May 27 and May 28 at AT&T Park, before shifting to the Coliseum May 29 and May 30.

The Houston Astros’ move to the American League creates a schedule that includes at least one interleague game every day, and 19 divisional games for all teams. The World Baseball Classic is also scheduled to return during spring training.

The ESPN “Sunday Night Baseball” opener is March 31, with teams to be determined, then 12 Opening Day games scheduled for April 1.
