destination? and a change in the weather? there he goes, and a strikeout ends the night. game one belongs to the giants. >> with that, the city by the bay stuns the city of brotherly love as the giants move one step closer to the world series. good evening, i'm diane dwyer. the giants proved they are a worthy competitor to the phillies tonight, winning 4-3 in
game one of the series. laura benke is in philly with reaction. we begin with raj. >> we'll say this as politely as possible, aubrey huff started wearing women's underwear to help rally the team. huff tonight wearing that thong in full display for all of his post game interviews. everything turning up roses for the giants. we won't show you the underwear, but we will show you joe biden. the big star of this game -- the past couple weeks for the giants, cody ross, one of the most unheralded players on the roster smacks two home runs tonight. both off roy halladay, cody ross, top of the sixen inning now, we pick it up with juan uribe, another role player on this team, drives in what turns out to be the game winning run. nate sherholtz -- he leaves a
lot of people stunned. >> reporter: they basically acquired him in order to stop the padres from scooping him off the waiver wire in august. but quickly, cody ross is becoming one of the giants most valuable players this postseason. tonight he took roy halladay deep twice. call him mr. october. his teammates do. >> ross got us on the board, he did it again. put a lot of life into it. it's probably one of the best games he's had in his life in a big stage. he really sparked us tonight. >> it's a big win for us tonight, coming in here. taking a person -- it's a good feeling for us. >> so many likeable players on this team. great start, yes, for the giants, be very careful here, this series is far from over.
there's a big headache waiting for the team tomorrow night. we'll explain just ahead. >> thanks, raj. >> let's go giants! >> let's go phillies! >> philly fans in the bay area? still to come at 11:00, we'll take a trip to the san francisco bar where the giants are not the home team. but first, police in oakland say a man was shot and seriously wounded while he was at a bank of arica trying to use the atm this morning. the shooting happened around 9:15 at the safeway shopping center at the corner of broadway and pleasant valley. a 28-year-old man was shot at least twice as he used the atm, it's not clear at this point whether the motive was robbery. police are offering a $5,000 reward for information on if thf gunman. the victim is in critical condition in the hospital. the bay area has considerable pull as a tourist attraction, of course, from culture to beaches and hikes.
ask any tourist, and walnut creek probably doesn't make their long list of spots to visit. city leaders want to change that. kimberly terry's in walnut creek with more. >> like most cities in california, walnut creek is trying to come up with additional resources, and city leaders think that tourism could be one them. >> next week the walnut creek city council will discuss the creation of a tourism business improvement district. hoping to get people to come here and stay a while. >> obviously we're not a disneyland or san francisco, but there are people who would come. and will come and do come. >> the move would give the city the power to levee fees on its hotels, ranging from $1.50 to $2 per night. the president of the walnut creek chamber of commerce says the tourism business could stand to raise $275,000 a year, which would then be used for
marketing. jay hoyer says hotel and restaurant owners seemed excited about the plant to get people interested in what the city has to offer. >> i know this christmas season, i personally have 20 members of my family coming to visit. while they're here, we can go to san francisco or spend time here in walnut creek. we can attend a performance at the lecture center. there are a lot of things to do in walnut creek. >> a lot of people come here for weddings and tennis, and sees them as untapped resources for revenue. >> we have tennis events here, tennis tournaments. a junior's tournament, we'll have competitors coming from reno, from southern california, from all around to compete in these tournaments, when they do, they and their families come and stay here, that's way form of tourism a lot of people don't think about. >> he's right. >> i didn't know about tennis, is tennis a big draw here? >> i guess so. residents have mixed reactions
about walnut creek being seen as a tourist destination. >> any place could be, it's a beautiful city. i don't know if it makes sense. >> the city council is scheduled to take up the issue of tourism at their next meeting on tuesday evening. live in walnut creek, kimberly terry, nbc bay area news. >> thank you, kimberly. john mccain is up for re-election in his home state. he spent this weekend in california trying to build support for republican senate candidate carly fiorina, he spoke at a military veteran's rally this afternoon. mccain told the crowd that fiorina's challenger has tried to undercut the military in iraq and afghanistan. it's no coincidence the focus was on the military because just a couple days ago, senator boxer received the endorsement of the veteran's of foreign wars political action committee. mccain said he was stunned by the endorsement and lashed out
at senator boxer. >> barbara boxer is the most bitterly partisan, most anti-defense senator in the united states senate today. i know that, because i've had the unpleasant experience of having to serve with her. >> by the way, fiorina served as an economic adviser to senator mccain during his 2008 presidential campaign. she was pulled from the front line when she told reporters that neither mccain nor sarah palin would be capable of running a company. >> how about we make november 2nd freedom day and we take it back for the little guys? >> speaking of palin, she made an appearance in orange county today. the former vice presidential candidate was asked to speak at what was build as a voter turnout rally, organized by the republican national committee. hundreds of people attended the rally, palin and michael steel there, the republican national chairman were the two big draws. meg whitman and carly fiorina
skipped the rally. they'll try to reassure the crowd that there are no tensions between the tea party and the republican establishment. the top republican candidates also kept their distance from a tea party rally here in the bay area today. organizers of the day long event said they were expecting up to 20,000 people, but from what we could tell only about 1,000 people or so showed up at the alameda county fair grounds. coming up, a father speaks out about a tragic accident. his warning for all parents coming up next. they were trapped for more than two months. thousands of people around. why some of the miners are heading back to that mine in chile. and a cold start to the weekend, a lot of clouds, fog out there, mist and drizzle live over san francisco. more of it tomorrow and some raindrops in the forecast. details coming up.
you know it's bad when the press asks if you'd take a lie detector test. meg whitman didn't tell the truth about not voting or about how long she lived in california. she got caught in insider deals at goldman sachs. she changed her story about physically abusing an employee. she campaigned as tough as nails on immigration knowing her housekeeper of 9 years was undocumented. her tv ads have been condemned as false and misleading. and even her hometown newspaper said meg whitman has demonstrated "a loose relationship with the truth"
hundreds of emergency volunteers from san francisco came together to practice what they learned. they spent three hours practicing skills such as search and rescue, caring for victims and setting up staging areas. the group is called nert. organizers say it's no coincidence today's drill comes on the eve of the anniversary of the loma prieta earthquake. >> every april which commemorates the 1906 earthquake. and every october which commemorates the loma prieta earthquake. they are big refreshers to everyone. throughout the year we offer other trainings and skills, but those are the two big ones we
remember. >> the group has held citywide drills since 1992. leaders say they trained more than 20,000 people to step in and help in the event of a disaster. the training is free and open to anyone who is interested. next at 11:00, the sw sho yt south bay city looking to claim that title. breakfast combo. get a 16oz. cup of piping-hot seattle's best coffee and a savory new sunrise subway melt built fresh to your order for just $2.50. subway. build your better breakfast.

restaurant quality chinese in your grocer's freezer. just ask jerry brown. he gave california state employees collective bargaining powers. since then the unions have grown stronger and stronger. now state employees can retire at 55 with much of their salary for life. and taxpayers are on the hook for one hundred billion dollars in unfunded pension liabilities. no wonder those unions are 100% behind jerry brown. he'll just spend, and spend, and spend. as we told you at the top of the newscast, it was a big night for giants fans and a rough night for fans of the phillies. both of those realities played out tonight at a very unique place in san francisco. nbc bay area's monte francis is there and has the story. >> a sea of red and orange filled a pub in san francisco as
giants' fans rallied their hometown spirit and phillies fans tried not to lose hope. >> let's go giants! >> let's go phillies! >> by the eighth inning, phillies' fans looked worried. and soon after the celebration belonged to the giants. >> i feel ecstatic, i've been pins and needles all night, but the chicken wings helped me through it, and the beer, and it's all good. >> this pub has become a local hangout for fans of the phillies. it's unclear why, but it started about nine years ago. this is what it looked like here when the phillies won the world series two years ago. but this time, it was a different story. >> we're good fans, we're going to root for the phillies until the end. >> phillies could still win it, keep it going.
good game, giants. >> jeff has lived in the area for six years, he's a lifelong phillies fan who has a soft spot for the giants. >> i do have a soft spot, but the soft spot is very, very small. >> the seven-game series is far from over. >> in san francisco, monte francis, nbc bay area news. >> nbc bay area is your home for all things giants from some of the city's best superstitions. nbc bay area.com. people with babies are being warned to be careful right now where they place baby monitors, six babies have died since 2004 after pulling the monitors into their cribs and getting the cord tangled around their necks. savannah perrera was one of those victims. savannah's parents knew the monitor had to be placed out of her reach, but they weren't
prepared for the day she learned to pull herself up in her crib. now her parents are warning others. >> she was in her crib, and somehow the accident happened. she reached a milestone in her life, apparently, where she suddenly learned how to stand. and that was the end of her life. >> that's why the federal government is urging parents to keep all video and audio monitors out of children's reach or potential reach. the men rescues from that mine in chile are enjoying their first weekend home in a long time, at least most of them. two decided to travel back to the site to see where their families had camped while they were trapped 2,000 feet below the surface. a small group of miners held a news conference. they're saving details of their ordeal until perhaps a book. others have more basic things to worry about. some are having problems sleeping, or waking up confused
thinking they're still in the mine. >> they're having a very hard time from their psychological point of view, they have to adapt to a new life. >> otherwise the men are fit and healthy,nl tyanwo remain in the hospital because of minor issues. dozens of families enjoyed the day on the bay, multicultural festival today. the event isn't just for fun, although it was fun. organizers have their eyes on commerce. alviza was once a major shipping point. and some think it has the potential to become the sausalito of the bay. that's why he hosted the free event. he told the mercury news he hopes the event gains popularity and attracts more business to the area. right now we have craig checking in on the weather around here. glad they did that today, because tomorrow not so much. >> a lot of clouds and maybe a couple raindrops in spots. we'll take you live right now,
