9:01 pm
i'm dan ashley. the hits just kept coming for the giants tonight. but as much as the giants won the game the texas rangers also lost it. lots of errors. start with larry beil live at at&t park. it was loaded with errors in fact, larry. >> reporter: the rangers he committed four errors. the giants made mistakes themselves but in the end adds up to a giant victory in game one. i heard thousands of people as they were exiting the stadium all chanting ooh ooh-ribe. an offensive explosion as we check out the highlights of the giants series opening 11-7 victory. willie mccovey, the giant hall of famers throwing out the first pitch. in the first, guerrero smokes one off of lincecum. texas off to a 2-0 lead. bottom five, freddie sanchez
9:02 pm

9:03 pm
opener. we will have more coming up and hear from the giants players later on in the newscast. live at at&t park, larry beil. >> it was not what we expected in terms of a pitchers' duel but awfully exciting nonetheless. now, amy holyfield also at at&t park live. the fans seem like it is finally their time. >> larry had people chanting and screaming. i have a subdued crowd here tonight. they will make a liar out of me as soon as they realize the camera is live and they start yelling and screaming. is a fan said hey, we have three more games we have to win. what a game. it was exciting. what was amazing is how many ballpark.nt to watch the game many came with the hopes of getting a ticket which was
9:04 pm
nearly impossible. most just wanted to be close to the action. they said they couldn't afford a ticket but wanted to be here for this moment. it doesn't happen very often. >> it's fun. how often do we get a world series in up to. in not that often. i tried in '89 and 2002 and this year to get a ticket. i still can't. i'll try again. >> i love the atmosphere with the fans. it's loud. it's crazy. >> giants are winning! >> reporter: ticket prices tonight were obscene. we met people who paid $1,300 a ticket. there are likely people who paid even more and they said they felt like their team owed them a victory since they paid so much. the rangers fans did not get their money's worth unfortunately for them. we notice that people's attitudes were more intense tonight. giving attitude to the ushers about their seats and access to the stands. arguments among the crowd. ushers told us this is typical
9:05 pm
when people spend a lot of money they feel like they can act like that. the stakes are high for this world series not only for the players but for the fans. they are in it to win it and they are being very aggressive about getting their piece of the world series. amy holyfield, abc 7 news. they are, amy, thanks very much. she mentioned the ticket prices. parking like $60 and t-shirts are $40 but when you win it as bargain at twice the price. the weather for testimony's game a little more iffy. didn't need upo ponchos tomorrw night but could be different. >> the chance of rain at the ballpark tomorrow night is diminishing a bit. not much happening in the way of precipitation in the north bay. earlier a lot of moisture in the atmosphere. only napa reports any measurable rain at all so far this evening. a little batch of moisture offshore and some debinning to
9:06 pm
move inland up near clover dale but nothing really exciting in the way of precipitation. you can see the precipitation that is -- or the moisture that is moving inland is lifting northward away from the bay area at the moment and away from much of the north bay. so we might get lucky tomorrow for game two and have a dry ballgame but won't be dry in all parts of the bay area. >> a little later on in the hour we will move on to other news and get back to baseball a little later. new information about a crime one year ago that shocked the bay area and the country with its brutality. the gang rape of a student at richmond high school. a sadistic attack that went on for hours as people watched and did nothing. tonight the school board is holding a meeting to talk about security changes since that vicious attack. abc 7's cecilia vega has more on that and new developments with the victim. >> reporter: it was this location one year ago where a 15-year-old high student was
9:07 pm
gang raped outside the home coming dance. the section of campus was so dark and so isolated the school security had no idea the attack went on for two hours while a crowd watched and did nothing to happen. today that same area looks like this. trimmed trees make the space visible. fences keep kids out when they shouldn't be there. new lights actually work. video cameras once covered in cobwebs got a $2.5 million upgrade and they now produce high resolution video that stands up in court. >> i take pride in the fact that we did what was necessary to make the community understand and know that we were responding. we saw the problem and fixed the problem. >> reporter: more security upgrades in store for the rest of the school district. for the seven accused attackers a court date is in store in two weeks to decide whether they will stand trial. they range in age from a high school student to a 43-year-old man. all remain in jail facing life
9:08 pm
in prison. on campus the wounds still run deep. >> students at richmond high are fine upstanding young people who want to do well in life and felt like they were adversely impacted as a result of the tragedy that happened here. >> reporter: impacted by the barrage of headlines when the school became a national story but no one suffered greater wounds than the victim herself. a year later her identity remain a's none must. the family reached a settlement with the school district for an undisclosed amount. sources say it was in the millions. school officials are trying to make sure that last year's brutal attack does not become the school's legacy. h this is one of the suspects, 43-year-old john crane. the lawyer plans to argue that crane wasn't in the area the night of the attack. as for the rest of the suspects they will be in court on martinez on november 15 for a
9:09 pm
preliminary hearing. normally that is a brief court procedure and in this case it is expected to stretch for at least a couple of days because of all of the people who will take the stand. that includes the witnesses who saw the crime and police officers but not the victim herself. reporting from richmond, cecilia vega, abc 7 news. with just days left before the election a new twist in the governor's race tonight. meg whitman and jerry brown both released new and different campaign ads today after a challenge to end the negativity. here is political reporter mark matthews. today, jerry brown's campaign introduced a new tv ad taken directly from yesterday's women's conference. >> if she takes the negative ads i will take mine off. we do is together, no problem, i ledge that right now. >> i don't think we can take down the ads that talk about where governor brown stands on the issues.
9:10 pm
i don't think it is the right thing to do. >> brown's campaign kept him away from cameras today but whitman was campaigning in san diego and riverside and her campaign released a new ad. one decidedly positive. >> our problems are tough but so am i. >> at the same time the campaign cent links to this jerry brown video where he is seen telling his supporters he wants them to go negative. >> we will attack whenever you can. >> meanwhile, political pundits and analysts put yesterday's performance down to whitman's campaign inexperience. >> she should have said i'm pulling my negative ads, as a matter of fact, jerry, i don't even think my ads are negative. >> republican campaign consultant says whitman couldn't afford to pull3w her negative ads, she is trailing but there were other ways to handle it. >> one would have been to say let's sit together and bring governor schwarzenegger in and
9:11 pm
look at each and every one of the ads and decide which is negative versus which is a comparative because that is one thing we get lost in the whole debate. >> reporter: abc 7's political analyst says whitman could have just gone positive in the last several days because that is what campaigns do. >> you start positive and go negative and then come back positive. it was likely that both campaigns were headed in a positive direction anyway. it wouldn't have been much to say that is where we will go. >> reporter: instead, meg whitman is defending the negative ads saying voter is warrant to know. in the newsroom, mark matthews, abc 7 news. well, bring on the bay area jobs. coming up on abc 7 news at 9:00, new life for numi at tesla takes the wraps up its new factory in fremont. arrested and thrown in jail.
