6:13 pm
the park. >> reporter: you know they are excited. for many, if not most of the businesses, as you know, the revenue that baseball brings in, makes up most of the income that they get for the entire season. especially right across the street at mo mo's. it has been booked for months, according to the general manager. every one of the bar seats will be filled tomorrow, they say, and people will be standing shoulder to shoulder during this game and most of the home game as cording to the folks here at the restaurant. the general manager said the ballpark has been bringing a lot of energy and money to the neighborhood for the past 17 years. but home game days, those are the big breadwinner. >> everybody benefits. especially businesses around this neighborhood. having baseball back, it's huge. it's huge. >> reporter: and they say home game baseball he's illy brings in more than half of the annual revenue. if you want a table for the home games, you should start planning now. during the baseball season, those tables are some of the

6:15 pm
finish the weekend on a live look outside there at at&t park. i should say in side of at&t park as the sun sets on the west side of the stadium. you have 56 degrees. late day sea breeze cooling things off. the view of san francisco as seen from the belevedere point of view. 59 degrees. and clear skies to finish and close to 60 degrees. san jose mostly clear. a few clouds over the top of the santa cruz mountains. currently 61 degrees. the l.a. radar shows you a dry evening and as we move up the coast, you could see rain dropping from north to south, but this line we think will weaken considerably as it passes through mendocino and into sonoma. so you notice here rainfall expectations urk barely see them register on the map. the areas in blue could indicate areas in the hilltops and close to a quarter inch of rain but notice elsewhere, nothing to get the rain gauges moving south of san francisco. but for the morning with the extra cloud cover, could have a few sprinkles across the golden
6:16 pm
gate bridge into the north bay and temperatures warmer, thanks to the cloud cover, 40s to start off tomorrow. highs tomorrow south of san jose could climb close to 70 degrees. from san jose to son ol and pleasant ton, close to 70. and upper 60 noose concord and walnut creek and into san francisco, pretty nice day, partly cloudy skies, breezy by the afternoon, highs there in the low 60s. and into the north bay, you see the teams in the low 60s for tomorrow. so we do have the chance of seeing showers for the early part of the morning here. and then as we go into about early afternoon, 1:30, around game time, should see the temperatures around the ballpark a little bit warmer than we'll see toward ocean beach, 50s there but probably low 60s around early to mid-afternoon around at&t park and during the day gradual clearing through the afternoon and the next best chance for bay area wide rain will be on the tuesday morning commute, mainly light rain. no, sir really intense showing up there. and then tuesday afternoon, check this out, mainly areas north of san francisco.
6:17 pm
seeing the best chance of showers through tuesday. one change by tuesday afternoon, though. you may notice the wind speeds beginning to pick up on the coast. 20 to 30 mile-per-hour gusts by tuesday evening so the hint at the biggest change we'll see this week. wednesday midday, probably into thursday morning, this looks to be the best chance for finding rain, an inch or two, maybe up in the north bay out of the system. that should be the focus of the storm. thursday afternoon into friday, skies clear and so at least the first half of the weekend looks dry right now but that is next sunday. it looks like we will see more showers. again the biggest focus here is in the north bay. areas around the south bay may not see a whole lot of rain except for the system coming in wednesday into thursday. so, active weather continues. again the north bay for four days, monday, tuesday, wednesday and thursday, chances of seeing rain, for the rest of the bay area, it does look like that wednesday, thursday system is the main impact. and dry start to next weekend but we'll see snow and more rain likely by next sunday. >> man. >> here it comes. >> thank you very much. coming up next, the world

6:23 pm
dropping five of the first six games is not how the giants envisioned their season opening road trip unfolding and to make matters worse, today they face a possible sweep at the hands of the padres. the padres. except that johnny cueto was on the mound and he pitched and he owns the padres. he also got a little bit of offensive help. and if you are having trouble beating an opponent, try distraction or blinding your opponent. plenty of giants fans. murero and shooting to white and posey comes around to score and crawford able to score on the flowing error to a left fielder got a hit to put them up 2-0. and next inning, pence staring down richard and he goes down and sends this one up and over the left field fence. a two-run shot, the first home run of the year.
6:24 pm
posey up next. he didn't have to go quite as deep. but he is like, i'll take the opposite field shot. his first of the year. cueto only gave up two earned in seven innings so doing well. and then in the bottom of the ninth, two on for will meyer and mallancen on mound and he gets the save. the 4-6-3 double play and the giants win 5-3. we get more now from our post-game live crew. >> thanks, mindi. with rich anda med and since opening day, he needed to pitch again and he did and he pitched pretty well. >> he did. he got the first save as a giant and mixed all of his pitchers in. it was good to see after having basically a week off from opening day in arizona. he hadn't thrown a pitch. so to get him in the game and get his first save out of the way before they get back home, it is a big thing for him. >> saw him pitch the other day but they couldn't get him in.
6:25 pm
>> and still a heartbeat situation but i'm sure it takes time for a guy to get comfortable with a new team and a new rule. >> and you have to win more games and be in the position to get your closer in. so he hadn't pitched in a while and a little rusty, but 47 saves last year. four time all-star, he is going to be phenomenal. >> offensively in the first seven games so far, pretty good. and i think maybe above what people expected this team to be able to do coming into the year. >> i think so. and today we saw power, added three and four hitters in posey and pence. and one hit down the left field and the right field line and to give the giants the early lead which was key for cueto, for him to have a lead to work with and he had leeway there. >> and nine home runs so maybe offensively they would bring that back and keep the momentum going because the diamondbacks do score runs. they have to hit with them. >> what does moore have to do to
6:26 pm
win the home opener. >> throw strikes and get early outs an the guys behind him have to play clean defense. >> and no runs. >> right. >> that would help. >> no runs. >> back to you, mindi. >> and sergio garcia won the masters on the first playoff hole. beat justin rose and captured his first major win. we'll have more highlights tonight at 11:00 and more news right after this break. it is live-stream your favorite sport
