defense of mountain lions amid increased sights in south bay and also in the peninsula. last night san jose parents asked them to gauge the real threat of mountain lions roaming their neighborhoods. here's what officials told them. you have a significantly higher chance of being struck by lightning than being attacked about a mountain lien in urban area. they're not looking to relocate the lion but to help people not attract them. that means not leaving food out for deer because the feed ultimately attracts mountain lions. the most recent mountain lion sighting needs to be put into perspective. >> the video of the mountain lion on top of the car is misleading because that house is literally built into the hillside. the lion was -- could almost jump out of its natural habitat on to the car. >> since 1986, there have only been 15 mountain lion attacks in the entire state of california. of those 15 attacks, 6 were fatal but those attacks occurred in state or county parks, or wilderness areas not urban
areas. fish and while life say the recent attack on a 6-year-old boy was a fluke. that boy attacked by a 65-pound juvenile mountain lion last month while walking near the winery. officials say the lion was probably startled while sleeping because attacks like that are extremely rare, as we just cited. the mountain lion later tracked and killed after it became aggressive. the boy was treated for cuts and scratches but is okay. an environmental group will announce plans to sue the city of san francisco over toxic turf installed on numerous soccer fields. the coalition to protect golden gate park is taking legal action against the recreation and park department and the city field foundation. it claims the city installed turf that contains toxic crumbs, made from ground-up tires. those are blown up all over the field, as players run and fall, ingested by children and players. the coalition worries the crumbs could cause health problems

most orange and black we saw was from the concessionaires, odd choice of colors for those employees who work for royals. from my vantage point along the third baseline i counted four giants fans in the stadium. they're not hard to spot. someone else wearing a stadium counted 6 oh it does not include staff. no surprise, considering the cost, the travel, hotel, hundreds of dollars more for the tickets. but for few who came, it was worth the trip. >> it's over. just ask these fans. er. >> best of seven, not best of one. >> our best pitcher. this game i knew he'd whip, but it's going 6 of 7. good for us. >> they'll be sad when we take it in five, honey.
>> reporter: i didn't realize we're hotties. she could be wrong, not if the giants played like they did last night. hunter pence's monster homer early and mad baum shut down the offense. royals did have a chance to even it but it never happened because of at amazing pitching on the mound. only run for them a homer in the seventh, why many royals fans left early. leaving in the sixth, seventh innings. that's remarkable. they waited 29 years for this. it hasn't been since 1985, you think the amount of money they put out that shows how frustrating it was to see the team dissolve in front of the giants here last night. again, game two, world series, just under 12 hours from now, 5:07 california time. and sense among the royals fans you can imagine, they've got to win tonight, it would be difficult to arrive at ta&t par

for game four, price jumps up to $794. and earliest the giants could win the world series. sun the price drops just a bit, $663. we want to see how you support the orange and black. that's why we have a whole page on our website dedicated to you and the fans. tweet your photos or send us an e-mail. right now, an update on breaking news. we've been following all morning long in gilroy. a pallet fire, you see flames still going there. east gilroy, just north of 152, following this, 10,000-square foot fire, three alarm fire, so evacuations or injuries. flames substantial right now. what are the winds like down there? we'll check in with rob mayeda. what are you seeing? >> you saw the smoke going straight up, not blown sideways across the ground. not strong winds, dense smoke in
areas dealing with the fire. the winds right now close by, north-northwest, up to five miles per hour. san martin airport, northwest wind at two. i don't think we'll see the smoke drift too far north. concentrated off the heeft of highway 101 and north of 152, mike keeping a close eye on this. right now wind does not look to be a factor. temperature of 46 degrees. you see wins from san jose out of the northwest. if we had a south wind, we'd notice smoke pouring into the south bay. winds do not seem to be configured that way. game two, kansas city, showers on the approach from the west, some of this may creep in towards the second half of the game, we'll call for a slight chance of showers showing up later. temperatures around first pitch time 64. game three in the bay area friday, rain likely late in that forecast, too. this morning, 40 and 50s outside. afternoon's forecast from a cool morning to low 70s around
