11:20 pm
fog is not in the city, there will be a little patchy fog. a little patchy fog tomorrow morning. but as you can see there's not much of it, it goes away. purples are 100, so look at that. that's very warm all the way to the coast. 70s all the way to the beaches. even mid-70s. san francisco upper 70s, this high continues to build in and then it weakens as we get into friday. so there's the temperature spread. from coast to england. won't be hard to see 105 somewhere but the cooling begins on friday but i think thursday will notice cooling. friday, saturday, sunday, temperatures will drop off. significantly for the weekend. fire danger will take a break, so on so fourth. there are the forecast highs. tomorrow is another's perlier day. fire danger, there's no fire weather warnings. when you know what that means, it means high temperature, low humidity. low fuel moisture so fire

11:25 pm
you don't see this. matt chapman in the first, solo shot of tyler beede who again got rocked. four runs in four innings. matt olson hits a shot that might have left the yard if it was a little higher. took a weird bounce, chapman and grossman are scoring and it's 4-0 as you look at how oddly that ball hit up on the landing. and bounced directly to the right. made a hard right. sixth inning, another ball leaving the premises. off the bat robbie grossman, the a's jumped out to a 6-0 lead in this thing before the giants come alive and as has been the case, most recently, yeah, a little something to do with them getting back into it. three-run shot, he's got 13 already. didn't play the first couple months of the season. now 7-5, chapman puts it away for the a's. 27th of the year. homer bailey, the star, the starter went seven innings, two
11:26 pm
hits, no runs. matt chapman hot again. that's the deal with the a's. >> i think it's the hardest place to hit in the big leagues. i think oakland is second. so if you're hitting home runs in the bay area, you've got to get them because both pitchers ballparks by far. >> the weather is warm, different deal. looking at matt harvey there, last with the angels but you may know him best as an all- star with the mets when he was known as the dark knight. his career has plunged since then. angels released him, 7.09 e.r.a. after 12 starts, the a's pick him up, giving him a chance. why not? aaa club on a minor-league deal. signed a one-year deal for $11 million with the angels. no doubt regret spending on him. i don't know if you saw it but the star of issue number 2 of hard knocks, jon gruden.
