to see more into the fight time hours and into early tomorrow morning. in fact, as you look out over the bay right now, we have some partly cloudy skies. the temperatures a little cool as you approach the coastline but as you head to the valleys still warm 85 livermore, 81 concord, 74 san jose, 66 breezy into san francisco. looks like the weather as you head out tonight may be a little drizzly along the coastline late tonight. partly cloudy into the bay, and then clouds moving in late in some of the interior valleys. it looks like the numbers mainly in the 50s and then tomorrow, drizzly at the coastline, i think a few more clouds coming our way. partial clearing into the afternoon inside of the bay but comfortable and mostly sunny mid-80s in the warmer spots well inland. high pressure trying to build in but you have this low that's passing over to the north keeping our temperatures below average for this time of year so keeping them down a few degrees and probably going to stay that way at least through tomorrow. then just going to bounce around a little bit. if you are headed around the state though you will find hot
temperatures. 101 degrees today in fresno. watch out there's still a chance of thunderstorms toward yosemite, 95 there in the afternoon. patchy fog at the coastline overnight tonight shooting inside the bay into the mountain passes and valleys but tomorrow afternoon, it will start to clear out in spots at least inside the bay along the coastline. but that strong sea breeze will keep temperatures down. overnight lows into the 50s in most spots. about 57 overnight low in san jose, 54 in fremont and about 54 degrees also in san francisco. around the bay you will see about 74 degrees tomorrow in san jose. 83 morgan. 73 fremont. east bay temperatures running up to the mid-80s in the warmest spots well inland. low 80s toward the tri-valley and livermore. about 78 degrees in walnut creek and 75 degrees in the napa valley mostly sunny in the afternoon. 66 degrees in oakland and about 62 degrees in san francisco. next couple of days, we are going to watch those temperatures drop off a little through monday then slowly start to warm up toward wednesday and thursday. then maybe we'll see some low 90s by the end of next week but
really a whole lot of cloud cover coming the next couple of days but the good news, hey, you know what, if you want to go to the gilroy garlic festival, and i was there yesterday, it was a great time, we did our weather live down there yesterday morning, it looks like the weather is going to be very nice. it can get very hot in gilroy at this time of the year. temperatures only expected to be in the low 80s there. >> year after year i have bypassed it because it's too hot. this is the perfect week to go. >> go tomorrow morning. >> all right. thank you. kim is in. all right. as, giants, today is one day that you could have taken in the game as a fan but unfortunately we're here. an mlb expert breaks down the giants struggles and the as are doing anything but struggling although joan rivers may take issue with their uniform choice. ,, ,,
the clock day at the coliseum.... and one of the things similar between todad 1969 is the an >> what did you think about the retro uniform? >> i like the old school uniforms. it's fun and good way to sell jerseys. it was turn back the clock day at the coliseum and one of the few things similar between today and 1 the 69 is the angels are once again looking up at the as in the standings. vita blue looked back in 1969, the current as trying to do the same. josh hamilton struck out to end the game last night a different story in his first at bat today. he sends one into the right field seats off tommy milone hamilton's 15th of the year 1-0
angels. mill loan shut down the halos from there. the as finally get on the board in the 7th. derek norris picks a great time to get his first career pinch hit a two-run shot to left. 7th home run puts the as up 2- 1. weren't done there. jed lowrie goes the opposite way over colin cow gill. coco crisp from first. 3-1 as and as usual the reliable bullpen came in and shut the door. ryan cook gets mark trumbo in the 8th and then the right field, grant balfour who pitches a 1-2-3-9 for his 28th save of the year. 3-1 as the final. tommy milone is 9-8 on the season. oakland is 4.5 games over the rangers in the american league
west. on the ground, i don't believe it. >> yeah. nobody believes it. the giants are just finding different ways to lose these days after last night's defeat to the cubs, they fell a season low 10 games below .500 and 8 back in the west. the numbers don't lie. their e.r.a. is tied for second worst in the nl. they have also committed the moser. >> reporter: in the league and only the brewers and padres have allowed more runs. and when angel pagan hit his inside-the-park homerun the angels were above .500. since he went out with an injury they are 19-34. former giants pitcher and current reds broadcaster brantly attributes it to them missing the key piece at the top of the order. >> i think a lot of the giants issue right now is putting runs on the board. and they had a difficult time last year doing that up until really the last month, month and a half of the season and they made that big run. and with no pagan in center field he seemed to be the --
seemed to be the fire starter. you know? the guy that would get things going. and you don't really think of that, that much until you have a guy like shin soo-choo on your side who is so good at getting rallies started and seeps like the reds offensively go the way of soo-choo similar to the way of the giants with angel pagan. the nhra is up in sonoma this weekend including jack beckman, a stage 3 cancer survivor. beckman says this sport isn't for everyone. but it is definitely the right fit for him. >> the other day i was watching drag boat racing on tv and i'm thinking those guys are nuts. i watched pro stock motorcycles. i think those people are nuts. they look at what we do and think we're nuts. you get in all that safety equipment and get strapped in the car and that alone would turn a lot of people pale white. they would want to pass out. would you have to drag them out -- you would have to drag them
out of the car. then they start the car, 10,000 horsepower. they accelerate from 0 to 320 miles an hour in less than 4 seconds. i'm telling you the power they make is astronomical. if there was a passenger seat in one of these cars, people would pay $1,000 to ride in it and it would be the coolest thing on the planet. what people don't realize is when you're holding the steering wheel, when you're in charge of that car and you have two parachute levers here and a brake handle here there's no time to enjoy it. it's fun once you get out of the car on the other end. talk about arriving in style, no limo for reggi wayne. he spent time with matt who was saved in an accident.
>> he is a showboater definitely -- interesting assessment of the giants. and the value of pagan. >> right. well, it does. one player can change an organization especially a guy at the top of your line-up and, you know, it really affected the giants when he went down. you got guys like lincecum hitting the no pitcher before the break is going to inject a spark into them and help them but we haven't seen that so far in this second half. >> all righty. very interesting. thank you. all right. flames near homes leaving neighbors on edge. >> just look at that. what if it had gone up there? these homes would have been in danger and no fire station. >> the ironic situation that made matters worse. that story and more tonight at 6:30. and that's it for us at 5:30. we'll see you back here in half hour and our news updates are on kpix.com. good night. captions by: caption colorado firstname.lastname@example.org ,,
