into dead center field. eight runs in 3 2/3 as the giants fall 9-3. a's ending their season with a set in seattle. third inning, the pitch. look at marte. guns to second and that goes into the outfield. an error on the shortstop. he's fast. heading home. there is the second error on marte. a throwing error. so two errors on one play. 1-0, a's. two on in the fifth. nelson cruz up the middle. base hit. deuces on the board. it stays that way until the eighth. here it comes, there it goes. danny valencia gets a hold of a fastball up, and he crushed it. his 17th of the year. and the a's win 4-2. on the first day of his indefinite leave, steve kerr was back at warriors practice. steve, come on. listen to the doctor! he went to get treatment on his back.
he dropped in for a few minutes of practice. i'm guessing to spend a few minutes with his new staff member steve nash, who promptly told him to please go home. many expect him to be back before the start of the season. right now it's time for the players to step up. >> we have older young guys. so, you know, even though the young guys are there, we have checked to be on the same page with or without steve. we understand what we need to do to get better. >> college football, the cal bears have a chance to open 5-0 if they can beat washington state this afternoon in berkeley. this is an air-raid against a bear raid. a ton of points here. they beat them 60-59.
>> you never know what to speck. that the the great thing about college football. no ebb knows what and going to happen and who is going to play well. i didn't know if i would anticipate that kind of game this year in terms of scoring. i know saturday's game will be a competitive, hard-fought football game that we have to play very well to have a chance to win. we will now have the highlights from all the games at auburn on "after the game" following notre dame and clemson that kicks off at 5:00. have a great weekend, everybody. i'm larry beil. >> 6:48, the time. how is the weather looking for the cal-washington state game at memorial? >> pretty good. we are going to see lots of sunshine, cooler temperatures. and with that we could even see a little bit of shower activity. >> it's not for the entire bay area. this is what is on the way. you can kind of see it. an upper level low that will drop down the coast later today.
but before that we have a few low clouds and fog to speak up. 56 in san francisco. its kind of a cool start out there. 54 mountain view and 52 in morgan hill. up in the north bay some numbers dropping into the 40s. our exploratorium camera. we are up to 50 in novato. you are 46. 52 in napa. 54 in concord. and we will be looking at a fall-like forecast for the first part of your weekend. so a red flag warning is in effect tonight, through tomorrow morning for elevations above 1,000 feet here where wind gusts could be in excess of 45 miles an hour. with that the possibility of rapid fire growth. the relative humidity could drop to below 20% in some of these areas. and at the surface winds could be at could be to 25 miles an hour. so about 2:00 this afternoon notice point reyes. 35 mile-an-hour wind gusts. san francisco across the bay
into oakland. it will be a breezy to windy day, depending on where you are later on throughout the afternoon. so getting started, it's quiet out there with sunny and calm conditions. but gusty winds. a slight chance of a shower and a fall-like week ahead. so as we take a look at what's happening, this system brought the rain for parts of the south bay and the snow for the sierra nevada. this system is really encompassing dryer air. so while we do have a slight chance of a shower, notice the fog comes back late tonight. then you can see just a little bit of activity from monterey to gilroy and most of it is up in the sierra nevada. so you could see some higher elevation snow and the possibility for a slight shower could be anywhere around the bay. but mainly south. in lake tahoe today 68 degrees. 79 in yosemite with low 80s in los angeles. so it is looking a little bit more fall-like with temperatures coming down. once that system moves out of here, numbers will rebound tomorrow. today for the hardly strictly
bluegrass look for low 60s sunny skies. in san francisco, golden gate park. then notice an increase in clouds and breezy winds. 78 today in concord. look for 81 in livermore. so all of these temperatures anywhere from about 6 to 11 degrees cooler than yesterday. it's about time, right? 77 morgan hill. look for 64 half moon bay. 80 in santa rosa. and the accuweather seven-day forecast, that will be great if we didn't have the wind. but the wind is going to kick up today. it's going to feel cooler, increase the fire danger and that will be with us for the first part of tomorrow. and then for tuesday, wednesday and thursday looks pretty nice. but by next weekend the temperatures climb once again, and that's the blue angels. so you can really make that forecast a year in scrans. it's always the same. >> thank you. this weekend golden gate park in san francisco will be filled with the sounds. free music. the second day of the hardly strictly bluegrass music festival begins at 7 :00 a.m. the festival has something for
