this past friday mornings on 2 was on the road in clayton for our latest zip trip. we want to thank everyone who came to play bocce ball and enjoy all the city has to offer. the bocce park is one of the main features in clayton and when it comes to a small town, sometimes getting things done be with a challenge and everyone needs to pitch in. >> as ktvu's claudine wong reports, the story of how the bocce park came to be is all about community. >> that's so fast. >> reporter: fair to say hitting the back wall in bocce is not the goal, but hey, i've never played before and if there's a place to learn, it's clayton because this is kind of the land of bocce. >> you try to get as close as you can to the small ball. >> reporter: it wasn't always this way and then five years ago a group got together to build some courts. >> never picked up a bocce ball
10:46 pm
before the courts were built. now i'm finding myself down here two or three nights a week year-round. >> reporter: he's not the only one who came to play. >> we have 180 players on a team, 10 teams, about 1,800 players. a little more than half are from clayton. >> reporter: in a town this size that means about one in every 15 people who live in clayton plays bocce, but this is not just a story about that little red ball and the quest to cozy up to it. >> yup, that's in. >> reporter: this is a story about community and about what it took to get these courts here. >> the biggest way new players get in is working onto somebody's else team. >> reporter: ed hartley and his wife fell in love with bocce in 2001 and thought it would be great for clayton, but three different attempts over more than a decade failed and one day ed hartley got a call from the owner, the local pizza place in town, offering land and a financial contribution on the condition that ed and the
10:47 pm
volunteers at the clayton business and community association would run it. >> it took us a few seconds to say yes. what was here was a vacant lot opened by the familiar and they were never going to build on it if this didn't work. >> reporter: $350,000 in private money was raised with contributions from the ipsen family and the cvca and in 2014 that vacant lot was transformed into the ipsne family bocce park and it was an overnight success. >> we thought we had room for 50s teams and ended up with 70. >> reporter: team members play about 40 bucks to play for 10 weeks of play. that money goes back to maintenance and back to the community and the waiting list is long with about 500 names on it. >> our oldest player is 98. i think we have a 12 or 13-year- old playing. we have people play that are blind and it's really brought people together. there's something in common that a lot of people have and that's playing bocce. >> reporter: it took a village or in this case a town to get
10:48 pm
the ball rolling. >> beautiful. look at. that. >> reporter: fair to say things have lined up pretty well. claudine wong, ktvu fox 2 news. be sure to join us at town fair plaza in fremont for our final zip trip of the season, that one coming up in two weeks. checking in on the weather, just looking at the fog, it's kind of reforming off the coast. outside lands if you went this weekend and marveled at the weather, it was unreal. this morning there was fog, but for the most part, the fog cleared and the golden gate park was mostly sunny and pretty warm, in the 60s and even 70s. the fog's returning. it will stay at the coast. it will be tight there. inland areas temperatures will come up as they did today and they'll continue to stay in the low to mid-90s all week inland. around the coast and bay we're looking at 70s and 80s. it's going to be a warm week. it's not record setting or red flag warning stuff, but we haven't seen a full five or six
10:49 pm
days of 90 plus inland in a while. so with that we got the pattern i showed you earlier. this is the microclimate, the classic bay area summer. often it's 60 to 100 inland, you get the 40-degree spread. that's basically how it goes tomorrow and the next day and next day right into the bay area weekend. there will be a slight cooldown towards the middle of the week, but most of it is very warm inland, almost hot and along the coast and at the bay warm to -- well, even the coast will be in the mid-60s. so tomorrow there's some patchy fog. this is san francisco, but it works for sausalito and oakland and redwood city and mostly sun in the afternoon. san francisco lunchtime 68 degrees. at the end of the day downtown it's 72 degrees, so a lot of cities in the 80s, 90s inland. you'll see it coming up. there's the fog forecast for tomorrow morning right at the coast. that's how you know the inversion is solid trapped out there, can't get inland because the high is reestablishing itself so effectively and there's the temperature
10:50 pm
footprint. reds are 90s. you see the reds bleeding in through napa, santa rosa and san jose. vacaville tomorrow, we've got 44 cities here and there pretty toasty. this isn't record setting stuff, but it's day after day in the inland bay valleys of 90 plus. so the airplane air concerns will be going. danville, antioch, livermore. most certainly we will see something spark up. that's just the nature of the bay area this time of year with these temperatures. take heart in knowing these aren't red flag warning conditions with strong winds or anything. this is just more hot, dry and low fuel moistures. 79 in san mateo tomorrow, 84 menlo park, 69 in daly city. here's the five-day forecast. the top tier numbers drop off a little down to the 90s, but that's a long run. i don't know if i've done, you know, when i think about it, i
10:51 pm
don't think i've had a five-day where we had 90s across the top for seven days like this in this summer. we've had a lot of drops in temperatures. we won't see that this week. so that's the big headline, very warm inland all week. >> thank you. fast & furious presents hobbs & shaw was number one at the box office again this weekend. >> i'm superman. >> you're crazy. >> the fast & furious spinoff brought in $24.5 million leading the box office a second straight week. scary stories to tell in the dark second with 20.8 million. the lion king was third bringing in $20 million in its fifth weekend in the theaters making it disney's highest grossing live action movie ever. dora and lost city of gold was fourth with 17 million and once upon a time in hollywood took the fifth spot with $11.6 million. up next in sports giants

joe fonzi joining us now in sports. both the giants and a's trying to get in the playoffs. >> the giants did enough against the phillies over the weekend to remain in the national league wildcard conversation. a nostalgic day, the 30 year celebration of the 1989 world series team, clark and mitchell, one-two punch in the batting order. the giants announced today clark's number 22 jersey will be retired. they used 14 pitchers. kevin pillar broke a 6-6 tie with his drive in the eighth. pillar gets his triple. evan longoria comes home with the lead run, but that was just part of it. will smith made his first ever plate appearance and nick pivetta pitched into right for a base hit and gets a pair of r.b.i.s on the hit. when you get your first major league hit, they want the ball as a souvenir. that will make for a lot of smiles in the dugout and another example why baseball
10:56 pm
should never be an all dh league. that's what smith did with the bat. how about fielding his position in the top of the ninth? quinn tries to bunt his way on. smith makes a great play falling down. belt makes an equally good play on the receiving end of the throw. smith retires five batters and gets the win, giants 3 1/2 games out of the last wildcard spot but trial five teams. multiple story lines at the a's played the white sox today trying to stay close in the american league wildcard standing. first it was a day to honor harold baines, hall of fame star who played for both the white sox and a's in his 22 year career, runs at a premium this one. matt chapman got something going in the fourth with a drive. jon jay goes above the fence to take a home run but can't hold onto the ball. chapman into second with a leadoff double. the a's in business. matt olson hits a drive jay has no chance of getting to, homer
10:57 pm
number 23 on the season for olson. 2-0 a's. starter chris bassitt began his career with the white sox. he had something to prove, back to back strikeouts for bassitt in the fourth and then in the seventh he comes up empty. bassitt allows just four hits in seven innings, gets help from 3 relievers in a 2-0 shutout. the a's are behind two teams now in the a.l. wildcard, a game and a half out of the picture. as much as the raiders tried to avoid it, controversy and strange stories continue to be part of their existence. the raiders were winners in their preseason game last night against the rams but still no antonio brown. brown's now added another chapter to a hot air balloon arrival and a frostbitten episode on his feet. brown was on a two-hour conference call with nfl officials making his case to wear his old style of helmet which is no longer recognized as league approved. brown has threatened to retire if he doesn't get his way.
10:58 pm
that seems unlikely as does the sentiment expressed by jon gruden after the game. >> he's one of the premier competitors i've ever been around and i got a feeling he would play with no helmet is how much he loves to play, but i'm not going to put words in anybody's mouth. we're going to support him and whatever his decision is, we'll stand by it, but we're confident that he's going to be a huge factor for the raiders for years to come. and the 49ers opened up with a win in their first preseason game last night 17-9 over the cowboys. the importance of these games is becoming increasingly debatable. 18 49er starters didn't even suit up last night. the one thing is isn't yet known when it comes to san francisco's roster is the identity of the quarterback who will back up jimmy garoppolo. nick mullens and c.j.
10:59 pm
beathard split time. >> i thought both made good plays. i thought each one of them had one really bad play, thought they threw a pick that was pretty easy to see. after that i they both of them played pretty well while being under a lot of duress. >> sounds like everybody is being a little noncommittal. >> is it possible they'll keep all three quarterbacks? >> i would say it's possible. they would probably like to identify the guy that would be garoppolo's backup. they had all three of those guys last year, but mullens was kind of an afterthought until beathard got hurt. >> thank you, joe. coming up next at 11:00. >> when you see him, he smiles. he will raise his hand. >> neighbors of a lyft driver are in shock tonight after police say he sexually assaulted one of his passengers. >> the 11:00 news on ktvu fox 2
11:00 pm
starts now. police stay a lyft driver took advantage of one of his riders after she passed out in the back seat. hello again. i'm cristina rendon. >> i'm frank somerville. that driver is now accused of sexually assaulting her. ktvu's azenith smith tells us police say the woman called for a ride in san mateo but ended up at the driver's home about 60 miles away in tracy. >> reporter: this quiet suburban neighborhood in address is where investigators say a lyft driver took his rider back to his home and sexually assaulted her early saturday morning. brooke phillips lives next-door and describes kolokolo as quiet and said he often kept to himself. >> it was absolutely shocking. >> knowing that they live right next-door and we would have never suspected anything like. that. >> reporter: police say it began at a bar in san mateo when a night of drinking took a turn
