game. a three-run home run. his second home run in as many playoff games. giants win a slugfest 11-7 and take a 1-0 series lead. >> i'm not trying to be the hero. if i can be the hero and get a bunt down to move two guys over for the guys behind me i will take that. you know what i mean? i might not get the headlines for the bunt but the guys behind me will get the headlines for driving in those runs and we will get the win. >> open up the world series at home against one of the best pitchers is what you want. it's exactly what you need as a team. >> scored six runs. that's unacceptable as far as i'm concerned but like i say you've got to give credit to the hitters and i've got to do a better job of damage control in that situation. >> reporter: and so you heard the giants saying it. they can score this many runs against this team with its best pitcher, well, there is nothing stopping them. they have a 1-0 series lead.
we will take you inside the clubhouse later coming up in sports. they are still honking horns and people can't get to sleep in the condos around this ballpark. >> they knew that when they bought the place so they are having fun too i'm sure. >> you've got that right. >> all right, dennis, thank you. giants fans obviously thrilled at tonight's win. joe vazquez with a few of those fans. >> let's go giants. >> what is it like to be in the ballpark? >> electric. the whole black is electric. >> nervous. been awhile. >> if chuck norris wears a beard. they have no chance. >> that's why we are wearing them. >> talking about torture. isn't it torture with not being inside? you're very close though. >> we have been watching the people just walk around who have tickets and they should be at their seats. >> you're thinking you could be
in their seats. >> exactly. >> [ [ cheers and applause >> of course i'm blown away. no barry bonds, no steroids. we are getting it this year. >> it is all about the starters. i think we got it in the bag. >> between the overwhelming victory and tony bennett himself singing "i left my heart in san francisco" i had some folks tell me this is the greatest life of their lives. it is not over yet. they have to win three more. with giants fans at at&t park i'm joe vazquez, cbs5. >> i'm linda yee sitting here watching the world series with some texas rangers fans. >> let's go rangers. let's go rangers. >> reporter: a handful of them lost in a sea of orange.
but despite being outnumbered they have got texas-sized pride. >> it feels wonderful. 50 years of waiting for this moment tonight and the rangers are putting it on the giants early in this game. >> reporter: in the early innings they weren't disappointed but this is giants torture baseball. when the game turns the rangers fans have to suffer the taunt. >> reporter: the cheers. do you feel a little self- conscious being in here? >> that's the way you feel in texas too. no. it is just one big party. everybody has a good time. >> reporter: in the end the boys in orange crushed the texans but they are eternal
optimists. welcome to giants nation. linda yee, cbs5. >> one pot club is using the giants home runs to get a little higher. >> we will pass out three in the club. >> three house joints in the club. that's right. the relief herbal center on mission street in the city here is giving away marijuana every single time the giants hit one out in the world series. the promotion is open to patients who are in the club at the time. >> all right. speaking of dope, we have some pictures of some gunmen bursting into a medical marijuana dispensary in san jose. surveillance video was taken at the monterey road dispensary on september 29th. these robbers showed their guns to the employees, tied up their hands and then got away with cash and marijuana. they also showed their faces. smart guys. first suspect described as late 20s or early 30s. about 6'2", 230 pounds. the second guy is about 5'7", 150 pounds.
and the men may also be linked to another robbery last month at another san joe's pot club. a bay area landlord is seeking out marijuana patients to rent his place and he is not secretive about it at all. in fact, he put an ad on craigs list. he showed robert lyles one room in the house that is a big selling point. >> reporter: it has three bedrooms that are works in progress. >> would number considered the master. >> reporter: yes. there is one bath room and even dirty on the walls. you made this with the soil in your backyard? >> yes. >> reporter: the calls to david peterson have been nonstop. >> somebody else is coming to see the house at 5:30 p.m. the sooner the better. >> reporter: so why are renters racing to a north rich mond neighborhood? >> in is the grow room. this used to be a walk-in closet.
>> reporter: that's right, instead of skeletons in peterson's closet there is a 32- foot grow table capable of holding pot plants. in fact, peterson has made indoor growing effortlessly. >> these are 1000-watt grow lights. this is a carbon filter. all the air in the room gets pulled this way. and reduces the smell basically. >> reporter: and it is all included in the rent. spelled out in black and white on craigslist. >> it is not very easy to find a landlord that, first, allows a 215 patient but encourages the rental of one. so it was kind of neat. >> reporter: and she is not alone. when our cameras arrived here tonight there were three perspective renters waiting curbside for a tour of the grow room inside. but no one wants to appear on camera. what do the neighbors think? >> you're not surprised to see
it in the neighborhood. >> reporter: he says pot is found in many places. >> many places yes. >> reporter: it doesn't surprise you? >> no. >> reporter: so neither renters or neighbors feel worried. >> it seems to be getting safer and safer as far as law enforcement goes. it has become a heavy weight battle. gold's gym corporate headquarters are responding. why they are promise to cut ties. creepy. >> how many people know about this? how secure is your eyewitness. maybe not as safe as you think. the hack that will allow somebody to break into your phone in just seconds. the newest eco friendly invention for bathroom. how this roll of toilet paper will help the environment. and your environment. we have rain.
in a ravine in the hills behind hayward high school. both 15 year olds went to school there. deputies responding to a report of a burglary found the other twin at a home near hayward yesterday. investigators tell the chronicle that he had the gas on and was asking deputies to kill him. they are not sure if the boy found in the ravine was murdered or committed suicide. these days everything can get political. how you vote. where you shop. even where you work out. last week's stories began popping up on the internet and in the gay press about gold gym's corporate owner in texas. he apparently gave $2 million to a committee run by karl rove to help candidates. but bay area franchise owners said they were breaking with it and will contribute to gay an lesbian charities.
>> because of their contributions to candidates that was the final decision. >> why? >> because a great deal of our member base is from the lgb community and it is important to them and it is important to us. >> i think it is a courageous move. >> would you avoid it. >> yes, i would have canceled my membership and gone elsewhere. >> gold's gym says it has more to do with problems about the franchise agreement than with politics. a problem with the iphone. again. this time it puts a lot of your personal information at risk. kiet do showed quite a few iphone users today just how easy it is to get into a so- called locked phone. >> reporter: the security pass code on your iphone can be beat in just a few seconds with less than half a dozen taps. there you go. creepy. >> reporter: apple has acknowledged the security flaw that allows an intruder to make calls, look up contacts and
listen to voice mail. outside the apple store we did it over an over again. there you go. >> geez. >> call anyone you want. >> reporter: the good news, if you want to call it that, the intruder cannot access e-mail or anything else. and the flaw affects iphones running os 4.1. but that includes nearly every single iphone 4 out there. >> for somebody to be able to break in and take all that and access it is a pretty big deal. i will be very concerned. >> reporter: in fact, this is the second such iphone security flaw. the first one happened in 2008 and bypassing the pass code then was even easier. senior editor kent german says apple is human. >> they put out a product. it is never going to be perfect. certainly apple has that same sort of aura about it that they can do nothing wrong and i think some people would believe it. this just reinforces the case that they are a company like any other. >> reporter: just buying iphone 4s yesterday. >> scary. makes me want to go back to my
old samsung. >> makes me feel like i shouldn't even bother wasting my time with my code any more. >> reporter: bob says he is still a fan. >> you disappointed? >> no. sorry. >> reporter: in an e-mail an apple spokesperson wrote we are aware of this problem and we will deliver a fix in november as part of an update. until then there is nothing you can do except don't let that phone out of your sight. kiet do, cbs5. game 1 is out of the way. it is done. but game 2. what's the weather. >> it is a question mark. these first few storms of the early season very difficult to track. this is live high-def doppler. i could only make one zoom at this particular time. happens to be around the north bay. reporting some very light rain showers. to the north and heavier
precipitation. this will intensify during the overnight hours. bottom line is it will be relatively dry. temperatures in the 40s and 50s overnight. not as cold as last night. woke up this morning with frost on your lawn. 50 san jose. this is impressive. i love this. this is like textbook perfect if you are studying this in meteorology school. moisture moving into the bay area in the overnight hours. very light. very brief. but it does begin to intensify. the bulk of the precipitation does remain well to the north of the golden gate bridge. now, watch this. this is very ominous because we have game 2 tomorrow at 5 p.m. wanting to play tag with the golden gate bridge and not wanting to work its way in. a very difficult forecast. i would plan on a chance of
rain during the game. just a chance. then when it moves in it moves in in earnest. 2.5 inches of rain by friday night. in between talking about temperatures tomorrow pretty much in the 60s. few low 70s. how about that extended forecast because we are calling for showers, complete rain out on friday but not on thursday. and then we will see on again off again showers all the way through your trick-or-treating on sunday. and that is the pinpoint forecast. >> thank you, roberta. it is the newest eco friendly invention for your bathroom. toilet paper without the role. scott is testing tube free toilet paper right now but only in the north east. if it is popular they will roll it out nationwide. get it? roll it out nationwide. the 17 billion cylinders produced each year create more than 160 million pounds of trash in the u.s. turns out most people neglect to recycle them. the company won't say how it is
turning out toilet paper without the roll. only telling u.s.a. today that it requires a special winding process. today that it requires a special winding process. >> on our car insurance. great! at progressive, you can compare rates side by side, so you get the same coverage, often for less. wow! that is huge! [ disco playing ] and this is to remind you that you could save hundreds! yeah, that'll certainly stick with me. we'll take it. go, big money! i mean, go. it's your break, honey. same coverage, more savings.
and not only in that philosophical "every vote whether you vote in person or by mail your vote is counted the same. not only in that philosophical every vote counts way. erin asks us are mail in and absentee ballots counted first or only when the election is close. that's tonight's good question. everybody knows election day is november 2nd but did you know that you can vote now? the city of san francisco actually allows you to come into city hall up to 29 days ahead of election day and vote in person or if you would rather do it by mail you can vote absentee. city registrar of voters says thousand of absentee ballots have already arrived. they are kept in this sealed
room but are not officially counted until election night. >> we open up the envelope a week before the election then we run them through the tabulators. >> reporter: this new machine photographs and records each absentee ballot and matches it to the voter's signature then stores that info on a stand alone server which for security is not part of the internet or the city's computer system. he says about 40% of voters will vote this way. the ballots have to be in the registrar's possession by the close of polls on election night. even if that means going down to the post office to pick them up. >> with the post office's assistance we actually grab all the ballots at a street station and bring them back here for processing. >> i , lights, camera, netflix! so we started with a free trial and we were hooked instantly!

welcome back, everybody. to tpt, to at&t park. >> batting 7th and catching number 11. bengie molina. [ cheers and applause >> bengie molina back after being traded this season. tim lincecum on the road to the 2nd inning. flapping a double end in the gap. taking 3rd. later scoring. sacrifice fly. 2-0 texas. tim lincecum gave up four runs in five and two thirds. bat was sharper than his arm tonight. buster posey lines one up the middle in the third. game tied at 2. in the 5th freddy sanchez. forcing a go ahead run. sanchez 4-5 with three doubles in the game. hitting lee for six runs in the bull pen. supplying a big three run play. his second home run in as many
games. 9th inning. 11-7 giants. brian wilson. gets ian kinsler to pop out to right. game over. giants with 14 hits. hand cliff lee his first post season loss. kim coyle will take us inside the locker room. you put up 11 runs. you're in good shape. >> one thing we learn about these 2010 giants is to expect the unexpected on a night where runs are hard to come by with lee and tim lincecum on the mound the two teams combine for 18 runs and 25 his and freddy sanchez became the first player in world series history to have three doubles in his first at bats. >> obviously for no one to have done that yet i think it is something special for just a little guy like me to go out there and be able to do it. >> he was unconscious. that's how he is, though. when he gets hot he gets hot. and he can carry his team. >> anytime you are facing one of the best pitchers in the
game, you don't expect to put up a bunch of runs but we kept battling and we scored six runs. that's unacceptable as far as i'm concerned. you've got to give credits to the hitters and i've got to do a better job. >> we played one run games all year long and been pretty comfortable on them. that's about the easiest. still only four runs there. but it was a good job by the offense. pitching has kept us in there all year long and it is about time we showed up. >> oh, my gosh, man. i tell you. i almost cried. i almost cried. i think i didn't cry because there were too many people in the stands. it was going to be embarrassing. >> and dennis, if the rangers are able to even the series up tomorrow there is no need to push the panic button because they lost game 2 to the phillys and braves. >> great start for the giants. >> did you see the warriors, nba season tipped off for the
warriors. yes, it did. nba opening night in oakland. new comer david lee making his debut. new uniform. 17 points and 15 boards. monta ellis in mid-season form. warriors cling to go a two- point lead. stephen curry burying a 3. how about the sharks hosting the devils at the tank? second period. sharks did a lucky bounce off the boards in the net. joe thorton gets an easy goal for his fourth career hat trick. sharks beaten in jersey 5-2. that's it from at&t park. we have got matt cain versus p.j. wilson. >> love it. if they can take two here, it is huge when they go back to texas. but even splitting here would be good. getting the first one is always be good. getting the first one is always the toughest and they our state has a huge deficit.
meg whitman's plan will make it billions worse by eliminating the capital gains tax for wealthy investors, including herself. economists say her plan will "rip a hole in the budget" and is "deeply flawed". analysts for the l.a. times say whitman's plan is a "pure handout" to the rich creating a "huge risk" to schools and public safety. jerry brown's against this unfair giveaway because it will take billions from our children when we can least afford it. get california working again-for all of us.
