mark is here with sports where there's all this optimism in the beginning of the baseball season. but man it's been a rough start for both the a's and the giants. >> yeah, this is kind of a sour smelling beginning. i'll tell you one of the reasons is the injuries. the giants, buster posey and over the weekend jared parker is out with a broken clavicle. kevin graveman is one of their top pitchers out with a shoulder problem. their shortstop will miss plenty of time with a broken wrist. gloomy to say the least. look at this. a cold lonely dreary night as the oakland coliseum is right there. maybe they could put that tarp back on, i don't know. but four runs in the fifth inning, allowing carlos gomez to the wall out there. two runs going -- two runs are going to score in the same
10:55 pm
frame. mike nap lee down the left field -- napoli down the left field. they gave up five hits, five runs. in the meanwhile the former oakland a's, a.j. griffin back from arm problem giving up one hit, striking out eight. he had help. steven bow robbed by him. take a look at the big stats. the a's have made errors in ten straight games. they get only three hits tonight. meanwhile the oakland raiders are back at it. their off-season training program is beginning today and nobody really wanted to talk apparently about the 12-4 seasons and they completed. now, derek carr was an mvp candidate and so it will be unfortunate and late in this season and all the ways, of course, with a las vegas lean. there it is the master of the
10:56 pm
positive spin. it will not sidestep that issue either. >> it's not going to affect my teammates or affect my coaches. but the people that it affects the most is our families. people who it a%s the most here are all we've got. at the same time we still have good news right now. our fans are excited about that. i think they realize we still have times to really enjoy here. >> and looking at the positive there, but the realistic story is the area beacon of hope right now. according how the giants and the sharks are moving. the golden state warriors are looking very good yesterday in game one of their opening round playoff situation. draymond green had a lot to do on defense. he is the defensive player of the year. he got it rolling particularly in 49th quarter as he has his moments here on defense. then a little embarrassment on
10:57 pm
the offensive end as this slam dunk goes awry and takes in a little heat from the blazers. as they will do a little talking and afterwards he talked about -- talked about what they were exactly talking about. >> we were talking back and forth, but we all know each other off the floor as well. so it is not like anyone out there being disrespectful towards another. but it is just having fun. you know, you hear a shot he's talking to us. i had a shot and i'm talking to them and i miss that dunk. he's telling me i need to do calf raises and it will be good back and forth making the game better that's for sure. >> a little calf race for sure. and it looks like we might not have a whole lot of drum in the first round of the nba playoffs with a couple of steams back east, taking care of their business. in the west, grizzlies first. his san antonio spurs were up by as many as 26, but memphis
10:58 pm
falls within four late. however they stabilize, pow -- pow, gasol, take a look at who he ousted, leonard. 37 points down the lane, gets out of my way. san antonio is up in that series two games to none while the calves and indiana, they are looking the same. putting the bonus point there, but not same. seven assists. they also build a big lead. pacers are down by five though with 29 seconds left. it will be true to that, but they will catch the pacers napping, cire irving with 37 -- kyrie irving with 37 puts ice in the bucket. there's two games to none. take a look at the video worth check out tonight with
10:59 pm
baseball. and light plays, randall, the cardinals with a nice catch laying out to rob mercer right there. cardinals, they struggled early. same score hits the grounder. david frise, nice bare hand play. cardinals play some good defense tonight. that was not an easy play to make. the defense that you might have to think the a's are jealous of right now as we mentioned they made ten errors, at least that many in their last ten games. that's the sporting -- that's what's sporting live for tonight. frank and julie back to you. >> thank you. next at 11:00. >> it is raining again and the umbrellas are out as water managers make adjustments before the snow pack starts melting. a record setting season for rain. hello i'm frank somerville. >> i'm julie haener. water managers are making preparations for all the snow that still has to melt.
