8:46 am
arrieta who went seven and improves 8-1. a's and yankees, josh reddick broke his thumb two nights ago. he's out 4 to 6 weeks, and what has happened to sonny gray. coco crisp can't get there. coco misread that over his head and that's a two-run double. sonny lasted only 3 1/3. it's a 5-1 yankees lead. vallejo native cc sabathia, eight strikeouts in six innings. stephen vogt, the victim there. when steph curry goes into the training room, what do you think they look at first? is it his ankle, knee, elbow? it's the curry variety pack of injury. he dived into the stands going for a loose ball. the elbow welt isn't painful but

it is uncomfortable. he'll be okay for game three on sunday. what about the guy who was taking his picture while he was down. >> i need that picture. that would be something to remember. kind of disappointed. he took that moment to document it, if you will. go he took a picture of me, draymond behind me on the court. so he was taking in the moment. >> to the ice and the sharks will host the blues in game four of their series this afternoon. blues are switching goalies. jake allen is going to start inside of brian elliott. no slouch, he had six shutouts this season. the sharks, they own a 2-1 series lead and know they've got to stay aggress sniev yeah. i think we played pretty good games. our first game was probably the worst of the game. we know that they're going want to regroup and play a great game for us, so it's going to be a big challenge. >> remember, that's an early start in the tank.
8:48 am

8:49 am
h haywood and livemore. take your time along the central coast. we've had showers along monterey and a better sper techive shows you where the culprit is. it's an area of low pressure. it's going to slowly slide to the east and with it unsettled weather. here are sunnier skies in san jose. 53 in the city. 56 in the airport. oakland, 57. san jose, 57, half moon bay, 55. mt. tam, plenty of cloud cover out there and we're looking at cooler conditions in the north bay. napa, 53 as well as the delta. livermore, 53. concord, novato, 57. west wind at about 15 in the city. but otherwise the wind will not be a factor today. a sunny lake tahoe but 45 with showers this afternoon and the snowfall is over in the sierra nevada. scattered showers today, below
8:50 am
average temperatures even into next week, so this is one area of low pressure to the north of us that will be spreading these showers throughout the morning hours. 11:00, notice, pretty much anywhere from vallejo to san mateo, redwood city, san jose, and sunnyvale, you can see some showers. even throughout the evening hours if you have plans, you could see a shower over in hayward and cupertino. rain shower amounts, we talk about how light it's going to be. possibly better don't think you're going to have rainout but you'd dodge a few showers there, temperatures dropping into the upper 50s. the game starts at 4:15. in and around the bay today, numbers as much as 10 to 12 degrees below late may readings.
8:51 am
what we should have is mid-70s in san jose. 65 for you 62 in san rafael. and if you're going to be spending time on the east bay it will be 61 at 1:00 with a chance of showers. the accuweather seven-day forecast, an impact today and tomorrow, a couple of degrees warmer. still some clouds on monday and we'll look for very little change on tuesday. slowly warming conditions, but still looking pretty much below average into next week. so next weekend is memorial weekend. i'll seal what i can do. a lot of people like better weather, warmer weather. as for now, we're cool and cloudy and maybe showers out there. chris? >> time, 8:51. when the sound of pyrotechnics and echos of gears through san mateo, it's time for the maker fafrmt as "abc7 news" rohr reporter jonathan bloom found out, this year's event for
