and play like that and hurt this team the way i did. i nullified all the efforts of every other player on that field today. that's something i have to fix. i have to be better for this team moving forward. >> kap tomsula shouldering the blame. a walk down memory lane in the finale of the bay bridge series. the big three back together again. tim hudson, barry zito, mike mulder all throwing out the very first pitch. pretty cool moment as huddy and zito prepare to hang them up. brown the rookie loops a single to center. brandon crawford scores. 5-0, san francisco. so bottom 9, it's just a one-run lead for the giants. casilla on and he strikes out billy burns to close it out. the giants win the rubber match 5-4 to take the series. these fans don't care. bruce bochy, though, he does.

rescues like this one has played out dozens of times, man coming to the aid of giants impacted by man. >> we're maybe all together a thousand pounds going up against an animal that is 80,000 pounds who is pissed off, upset. >> reporter: this disentanglement took place not long ago near monterey there. >> was knot down below the epidermis. the anxiety level is quite high. boom we pop it. >> reporter: the number of whale entanglements is rising. at least 60 reports on the west coast this year, ten times the number two years ago. he also thinks the upcoming el nino may play a hand. >> these animals tend to know that something is up. so they're packing on the fat. >> reporter: not every operation is a success, but this one -- >> the rope slips off and pulls away. >> reporter: there are no high-fives at the end of the rescue. >> we give the signal of the success by too long our helmets.

coast becoming a little more widespread. and that combined a stronger sea breeze, as you might notice, seven-day forecast leading to a cooler start to the week. mostly 50s outside for the morning. and then as we approach noon, you'll see numbers climbing into the mid- to upper 70s inland. and not a bad day temperature-wise tomorrow. pretty close where we should be for this time of year that means near 80 degrees in san jose. mid-80s south of downtown. san francisco upper 60s and le 70s. and out toward the north bay, 70s and 80s. in the tri-valley for now in the mid-80s. and actually cooling down a few more degrees as those onshore winds turn stronger. the gorgeous sunset. not bringing us any rain. but the winds for the first half of the week that is going to keep our temperatures trending downward as we head towards tuesday and wednesday. san francisco in the 60s. and then rebounding into the mid-70s by friday. and for san jose, that means highs in the upper 70s. slightly below average as we head towards wednesday.
and a pretty good jump. the second half of the week, temperatures rebounded for livermore. mid-80s tomorrow. nice and comfortable there towards tuesday and wednesday. 90s coming back for friday. a warm-up that should last into the start of next weekend. and temperatures trend down a little cooler and breezy by next sunday. back to you. >> all right, rob. thanks for very much. coming up, it is a potential life-saver that will soon fill more shelves in cvs pharmacies. >> why some people oppose the drugs that reverses heroin overdoses. pharmacy chains, c-v-s, made a
big announcement this past week saying it will greatly expand one of the country's major pharmacy chains cvs made a big announcement this past week saying it will greatly expand over-the-counter sales of the drug that reverses overdoses of heroin and other opiums. >> some say making the drug available without a prescription is the wrong approach. gadi schwartz has more. >> reporter: next to the family pictures -- >> this was her first time.
>> reporter: heather corn shows us the type of injection that saved her daughter catherine's life. >> this is where i keep them in lockdown. >> reporter: catherine was a heroin addict saved by paramedics and the drug naloxone during an overdose. since then a supply is always close by. >> i think it should be available to anybody who needs to have it on hand. it should be easier to get that than should it be to get heroin. >> reporter: for years, it has been hard to get without a prescription. but as kate snow reported last year, parents of heroin addicts often keep it on hand. show of hands. how many people are here because someone they loved has used heroin? pretty much everybody. how many people have narcan in your house? wow. >> reporter: a growing number of states have passed laws widening access to the fast-acting drug. since last year, naloxone has
been available at cvs pharmacies in two states without a doctor's prescription. and now cvs is expanding access in 12 more states. cvs saying naloxone is a safe and effective antidote to opioid overdoses. and by providing access without a prescription in more states, we can help save lives. while across the country, heroin use has exploded. in 2013, 289,000 people were using heroin in the u.s. last year, the number of users climbed to 435,000. the crisis pushing deep into suburbia. opponents argue easy access to naloxone only enables drus drug users to do more drugs. >> it was the scariest moment of my life. >> reporter: but she fears keeping it in her home will send the wrong message. >> i think it should be left to the professionals. not in my home where my addict
could just decide i can use because there is somebody there to rescue me. >> reporter: and while there is still debate, naloxone is headed to more farm shelves. both of these mothers are grateful their children were given a second chance at life. >> you keep hearing reports how available that is in so many communities. >> we'll be right back. pope francis had a good laugh
