have a pattern of a little bit warmer inland. we talked about that. that's the trend pretty much the full week, and inland sector of the sacramento valley, san joaquin valley. the heat is going to bleed into our eastern areas. but in this corner of the bay area, where most of the big cities are, like mountain view and oakland, it will remain relatively mild. so that's the plan anyway, we will see how it works out. right now it looks like hot, hot inland saturday and sunday. and mild to warm, to very warm around the bay. there is the light camera shot that shows a lot of fog. we are in a pattern, kind of a stuck pattern. we are stuck between the high- pressure and the hot and the low-pressure in the cools of the north. there are two air masses that are sort of bouncing off each other and we are right in here. so the inland valleys will get the heat, but the low to the north will keep the winds blowing onshore. that's where the fog stays, that's why the sea breeze stays
10:50 pm
for the most part. there is the low spending, you can see at there. is becoming close we got fog, you knew that. a lot of fog. and then as we look at the temperatures there is the sea breeze kicking in. it's not quite as robust as last night, but you see some greens getting up in the sacramento valley. that is the piece that's going to go away. come saturday and sunday will get pinched. you will not see greens and a fairfield and brentwood. at least that's how we think it will go. cooler in fairfield right now than last night at this time. same in livermore. moving through the bay area microclimates you've got numbers like these, no big surprise. i just like this map because it sort of lays out the hills, the bay and the ocean, the three big microclimates. bay, inland and coastal. and the hot spots, about mid- 90s. there is the fog in the morning and then the fog burns off. again tomorrow is a lot like today, not much different. and it's been like this. we've been doing this pattern for about three weeks. it's going to be a little bit changed as we going to the weekend, as i mentioned, with
10:51 pm
the heat coming in. because we are between the low and the high, most of us aren't going to notice a heck of a lot of heat. but the inland will. the inland areas will, which is not that atypical at all for this time of year. i will see you guys back here at 10:00 and we will look at it again. coming up in sports, critics may say the giants have a real shot this season. but they silenced their doubters tonight. than on the 11:00 news, protection from the coronavirus even before there is a vaccine.
10:52 pm

10:54 pm
baseball season is going to last, but at least for one night you got to say that the whole lot of fun at the ballpark. oracle not a home runners hitters part? look what happened. thing we haven't seen in years. balls flying out of their. san diego's starter chris paddack with his own personal rosin bag, and pretty much the same for the giants. mike is trough, you will hear that name again tonight, his first homer a solo shot and a one bounce skip into the drink and it's a 2-2 ball game going into the fourth inning with the potters of 3-2. center fielder youngster trent grisham, that is not a cheap home run off john anderson. three runs sean, 6-2 and the giants in the sixth are pretty much cooks. and there they come, alex dickerson taking it with a 400
10:55 pm
foot shot. solo, got to hit him with men on. 6-3, bottom of the eighth, two on, two out. donovan solano, suite part of the bat on that thing, take it to right 6-6 game and we go to the bottom of the ninth. yes, again. >> high drive to right! headed to the logger! it is out of here! >> [ laughter ] yeah and the walkoff and they are distancing fairly properly at the plate. and a pretty big night out there for dave on his kayak. had both of these homeruns. and the giants with a walkoff win, the first of the year. on the other side of the bay this afternoon the a's, in normal times, usually off to a slow start. they can't afford that this time with just a 60 game schedule and a couple of tough ones against the colorado
10:56 pm
rockies. no fans, but no cramping in the bolton. spread out in the shade and getting a view of matt chapman going deep. he's off in the bottom of the first against armon marquez and it's a quick and short-lived lead. frankie mai tais for the a's gives up a long shot off the bat of tony walters. 's even get scalia take catches the ball nine out of 10 times, but it's off-the-wall. daniel murphy scores, only one running on that. the bases loaded and it's a 1-1 game. 2-1 rockies, bottom of the fourth two on, two off. for some reason nolan and renato decides to drop his ground ball to the plate. matt holsen is called out on an extremely close play. the replay will uphold that. i don't know about that, but the bottom line the a's are in the top of the ninth, 3-1 rockies.
10:57 pm
lazzaro's throat was off, olson can't keep his running. and 2-1 score, 5-1 and a sweep of the two games series. and the a's hit the road for a day off tomorrow. something happen last night. it just can't happen. and of the dodgers have a grudge against the astros. back to the 2017 world series with the astros potentially cheated, probably did. and last night joe kelly took it out on the dodgers and said he hit, or almost hit a couple of the houston astros and knocked them down. for that, today, he is suspended for eight games. the manager of the dodgers, dave roberts, suspended one game. dusty baker's, for some reason, the astros manager was fined. you can't have players out on the field like that during these times. but joe kelly today on social media with this post, completely and repenting sent this out. i would like to apologize to
10:58 pm
absolutely nobody! the astros are hiding in their dugouts because i'm suspended. just wait until i get out. tough words from a guy who was nowhere near the field right now [ laughter ]. let's change the subject. remember three years ago when the 49ers only went out and hired john lynch? never had a front office job before and never been a general manager. i said at the time, hey the guy has been a winner all his life. he smart, personable, had a great football career, hall of fame caliber and he is a winner at everything he does. that trend continued. and after three years with the 49ers, he and kyle shanahan have turned the team into a bona fide super bowl contender. to some of his moves, he drafted george kittle, traded for jimmy g and wound up signing richard sherman. pretty good. he gets a five year extension.
10:59 pm
he will amplify on that, i'm sure, when training camp opens in a few days. back to baseball, as we have a little time to check this out. the triple play that shouldn't have been tonight comes with cincinnati's shoko akiyama. a line drive to third, touches third and eventually will throw to first for the triple play. but if you see closely, brian didn't catch that ball on the fly. he actually trapped it. it hit the ground. the umpire see it, evidently. the triple play that should not have been. but you know what? they will take it. the cubs lost big-time anyway to the reds, so it didn't really matter. that is the sporting life at this hour. we will tell you what unesco did tonight, the product from walnut creek. a big game from her, coming up about 20 minutes. next at 11:00:
