running back bryce love, but it was another senior who made a statement. the cardinals started this year with a 13th ranking, but the stanford offense did look like it. it struggled early. costelo's pass is tipped and picked off, but look at trent irwin. he jarred it loose and recovered the fumble. so it kept the drive alive and later, costello, an amazing 38-yard td catch. you have to see that one again. he lost control, but got it back right before it hit the ground. stanford led 97 at the half. third quarter, costello, yet again. still in the third quarter, same two gentlemen. this time an 80-yard connection. are you counting? that's three touchdowns to go with 226 yards on six receptions for our white side. and he also caught a two-point conversion. 20 points all by himself when the cardinal wins the season
opener 31-10. the as are in a bit of a slump by their standards and they lost three of the last game, and not great timing when you are fighting for a wild card spot, but guess what? this guy is ready for his call-up and he has this man to learn from. just watch and learn from matt chapman. yes, in the bottom of the first of the 22nd home run of the season and he adds another, a two-run shot puts the as up 5-0 after one, but in the fourth, seattle's robinson cano and nelson cruz go back-to-back, and they do that often and then it would be the former athletic ryan healy adding a two-run shot and seattle tied it up at five. the as have to fight to retake the lead. in the sixth, chris davis sends this one up the middle and brings in jeb lowery and the as go on to win 7-5, the final. they increase their lead over the mariners for the second wild card. >> mets and giants and stephen
duggar having season-end surgery. he brought in the first round on the sac fly. this is catcher iramis garcia and out of here indeed. his dad and family going absolutely crazy. he'll get the customary silent treatment in the dugout, but evan longoria then starts the celebration, well earned and giants pour it on late and win 7-0. the giants and the as continue their series today. cal will open its season against north carolina and mike from nfl.com is reporting that the raiders are in active talks with multiple teams for a possible trade for their star defensive end khalil mack. if a trade was to happen it would happen within the next 24 hours, but nothing is certain. so we will bring you the latest on that and all of the day's highlights coming up later on abc 7 news. we'll see you then. >> now your accuweather forecast with lisa argen. good morning to you. our modest warming trend continues.

degrees. coastal fog this morning and some of it working its way toward the bay. mild to warm for the weekend and looking at summer like weather tomorrow and monday where we get into more 90s arriving inland. it is about the low clouds and fog and as we look at the morning forecast, notice by the afternoon, the fog is stripped away from most of the shoreline and maybe a few patches around half moon bay and tonight the fog comes back tomorrow morning looking at low clouds and fog around southern marin. the san mateo coast, santa cruz and once again it's wiped out and we'll see the warmest day, i believe, on sunday especially inland. so it looks pretty similar day to day, but as we look at your forecast over the three days and notice that for each and every day for redwood and san francisco, redwood city upper 70s, but as we stip down through the inland valleys in livermore, you'll notice we have 90s on the map for tomorrow and monday, and it looks leak perhaps tomorrow maybe a couple of degrees warmer
