with more sal? >> reporter: ken and heather spoke to a lot of giants fans today. this day now is over in philadelphia. in fact, early in the morning here in philly. a big sports day for them. even though the giants lost, they said their goal, many of the fans say the goal was just to come away with one victory here in philly. they did that. and flying back to the bay area. we spoke to a lot of fans today. >> after last night's victory, how do you feel? >> relieved a little bit. being in this park is a little hard this time. they are not incredibly generous with their chance. but it is a fun place to be at the same time. >> reporter: she says she likes this year's team and has learned not to count them out. >> they are so perfect for our city. we just have this cluster of crazy people who come together and win ball games. >> reporter: ross game -- came up big again. it was not enough. but giants fans never know which player will carry the team on any given game. >> we picked a lot of these
players off the ash sheet of others with ross and sorry of a chemistry on this team. >> he sacrificed to come to the game in philadelphia. >> we threw down some money for this but it was worth it. don't get a chance to see the giants on the road in the nlcs very often. an unbelievable opportunity for us. >> reporter: surprisingly many of the giants fans we saw in philadelphia were not from the bay area. many have not even been to san francisco. is it hard to follow the giants when you live on the east coast? >> it used to be. not so much now, i mean, with t.v. packages and whatnot you keep up with them. but they are 3,000 miles away. i got to get in the building for one game. >> reporter: you may recognize that green thing. it's the philly fanatic. the giants won't have to deal with any of that, any of the loud yelling and the sea of red. there were about 46,000 people here tonight. the giants fans of course anxious for the team to get back to san francisco. game three is tuesday at 1:00
or so in san francisco. live in philadelphia, sal castaneta. >> plenty of giants fans at at&t park tonight. not in the stands but in one of the bars. ktvu's deborah develop ron will have the live report of the fan reaction later on in the newscast. it would be a tall order to expect the giants to take two games on the road in philadelphia. i guess the team many sports analysts predicted would win the world series. >> joe upony has the highlights and also some perspective for us. >> a sweep for those two would have been a lot to ask for. disappointing for giants fans to lose tonight. but if you told them the giants would be coming back from two weekend games in philadelphia tied at a game each they would have been just fine with that. juan uribe scratched with an injured wrist tonight. the phillies got the jump on the giants with this one with an unearned run in the first. but in the fifth that guy again could he did i ross gets the
first hit off roy oswald. a solo homerun that tied the game. the third homerun against the phillies now for ross. but in the bottom of the 5th the phillies again went in front after shane victoriano. and a sacrifice fly to center. they put it away off jonathan sanchez in the 7th. one already in and jimmy rollins hit one off the field wall. that homerun sent everybody home. close game close no longer. the phillies win it 6-1 to even the series at a game apiece. it guarantees three games apiece this week in san francisco. fred inglis live with us again tonight in philadelphia. fred we knew this series would be about pitching. tonight oswald was the guy who stepped up, huh? >> yes, you know what's strange, too, is jonathan sanchez dominated all this regular season.
oswald has had trouble with the giants in this regular season. here he comes out eight innings, three hits, one run, nine strikeouts, throwing fastballs. in the second rotation showed them nothing but changeups, kept the giants off base. all this game only two giants touched second base while oswald pitched tonight. truly he is 10--0 in this ballpark as we see behind us. 5-0 in the post season. roy oswald was truly the wizard of oz. >> he just had three or four pitches going. he did a good job of mixing the speeds and hitting the spots. >> we still feel good about it, you know. we leave here 1-1 to go back home for three games. you know, we will have the home crowd on our side. you know, we are glad to be in this position. >> nobody expected us to be here. we are here. we came into a hostile environment. great pitching staff. we have got the same. we are 1-1. can't ask for much more than that.
>> yes, giants need to find more offense. and regardless who they are being pitched against. and obviously somebody other than could he did i ross has got to step up. cody tonight hits his third homerun in two nlcs games. all three homeruns were solo homeruns. all three homeruns came off fastballs. i don't think could he did i ross is going to see another fastball in this series. but, again, this was a big day for philadelphia. about 1,000 yards behind me is the lincoln financial field. that's where the philadelphia eagles beat the atlanta falcons today. and then later this evening it is the phillies evening out the series here against the giants. so the city of brotherly love, joe, feeling a lot of love tonight. >> all right, thanks, fred. hear more from fred coming up in sports wrap. here is how things look this week in san francisco with the series now assured of going at least five games. games 3, 4, and 5 played at at&t parked. tuesday's game is an afternoon affair. matt mccain against cole hamels

[ applause ] >> brown continued the attack on whitman. >> there is somebody who never voted, never got involved in local school politics, never did anything about government or the political. and she wants to start at the top. >> reporter: students got their camera phones ready for the main attraction, the former president. >> the former president. >> reporter: from the environment to student loans he told the students the democrats have their best wishes at heart. >> but you can change the outcome of the congressional elections in america from this campus if you use the social
networks to inform the young people of the country. tell the young people of the country what is in the student loan law. that the democrats did it and that the republicans promised to repeal it. >> reporter: many students who have lined up for hours outside said the former president was the reason they were there. >> i have never seen a former president before so i am only 19 and maybe the first and last opportunities i will get. >> reporter: the brown/clinton feud dates back to 1972 when they were running against each other for the presidential nomination. brown did not dropout quickly enough. tonight it was clear that they have buried the hatchet. they even embraced, something they also did on friday at ucla. quite an inspirational thing for many students here tonight as they said it is a first-hand look at politics. live in san jose, ktvu ktvu,

moving in from the north and east. come in a bit tighter in the north bay picking up some light rainfall. pucking up some moderate rain cells into sonoma as well. rain shower still a part of our forecast for tonight. but the activity should gradually decrease as the overall weather system moves to the south. this was the scene looking out towards the oak estuary earlier this afternoon. all of the clouds still in place. in fact we still have mostly cloudy skies. and mostly cloudy conditions. clearing skies with the temperatures moving up. the extended forecast we re- introduce the possibility of a few showers especially up in the north bay. temperatures for tomorrow we will be warmer. the range from the low to mid- 60s coastside. they will reach around 74 to 75 degrees. this is the overall weather system to take out the circulation. that's an area of low pressure. it will be on the move for tomorrow. in fact, here is the eventual
track. it will be heading down towards southern california as we do head into monday. as high pressure rebuilds we will gradually scale back on the cloud cover with the clouds becoming partly to mostly sunny over the afternoon hours. temperatures will go the other direction for tomorrow. those readings around 10-15 degrees warmer as we do head into your monday. still pretty nice as we head into your tuesday as well. here is our forecast model showing you some of the cloud cover first thing tomorrow morning. the bulk of the rainfall is out of the weather picture as you can see here. an increase in sunshine into the afternoon by 2, 3 and 4:00. so throughout the day, tomorrow morning partly to mostly cloudy skies. temperatures 47-55 degrees. we gradually strip away the clouds as we head into the afternoon. ultimately mostly sunny skies by 4:00. 60s to 70s. oakland tops out at 69. remember just talking about 90s a few days ago? tomorrow just in the low to mid- 70s. today on the cool side only in the 50s. san francisco a forecast high
of 66. >> here is the look ahead. more sunshine on tuesday. temperatures continue to warm up. a little bit cooler by wednesday. then we will thicken up the clouds. that chance of a shower on friday is primarily up in the north bay. we are still talking about some baseball weather. you can't see on tuesday if you are lucky to go to the game mostly sunny skies and temperatures just beautiful in the mid to upper 60s in san francisco. so those big aerial shots of san francisco and at&t park great for the ball game. >> chamber of commerce pictures. >> you've got it. >> thanks, mark. >> the 49ers finally capture their first win of the season. so what does the coach have to say about the victory? >> highlights between the phillies and the giants in game two. and a live report from philadelphia. sports wrap is up next. ocooer feoel cort eeit t totr r
