5:17 am
9th inning. >> that's okay. good baseball weather. >> jinx. >> sorry.

5:18 am
series for the first time in 29 long years. you know, the younger generation here in kansas city, they can't remember this ever happening because obviously they were too young when the royals won the world series in 1985. so they are just thrilled to see this happening. obviously, though, when the giants you know, took the lead last night and never really gave up the lead, people were disappointed. the fans were disappointed. but they remain optimistic. this city is certainly proud of our boys in blue. and, you know, this is just game one. if you ask any of the fans who came out of the stadium last night they would say, you know, this is only game one. if you remember back in 1985, the royals were playing the cardinals back then lost the first game but went on to win the world series. so fans hoping that we'll see something like that again this year. but certainly they know that they are playing against a great giants team. but i think the message out of kansas city to our friends in san francisco would be, don't
5:19 am
start celebrating just yet. >> hey, we had to celebrate, brandon. do you see any giants fans out and about? >> reporter: we saw a few giants fans. actually, we spoke to one yesterday and they said that, you know, they were expecting more giants fans to be here in attendance but they said i guess there was a problem there was not many direct flights from san francisco to kansas city. so they said it's a little hard to get here but yeah, there are certainly a few fans here. >> thank you, brandon. you have a good pitcher on the mound tonight. we got jake peavey it will be fun. game 2 right behind you there in kansas city. thank you for chatting with us. >> reporter: thank you. 5:19. a paralyzed man back on his feet again and it's all thanks to a medical breakthrough that was right under his nose coming up. >> and what is cool about your school? we want to know. you can email your nomination
5:20 am
to us at we may come and feature your school on the show. en greenberg has the pros emping" in this >> and there's a strong demand right now for temporary workers. steven greenberg has the pros and cons of temping in this morning's jobs report. >> reporter: temporary workers represent a record share of the nation's workforce. almost 3 million temps a week are employed through agencies. that's up 5.6% from last year. there are positives and negatives to temping. those jobs often mean low wages no benefits or training and irregular hours. other than, temping is more mainstream and many desirable employers are getting on board. companies in the bay area such as gap, kaiser permanente and jawbone hire temporary workers. and employment agencies like manpower and kelly services are actively hiring for temp administrative assistants, production associates and accounting clerks in the bay area. employers hire temps at all levels of experience. and if the company's need becomes permanent those workers are perfectly positioned to interview for the job. manpower claims that 40% of their temps become permanent hires. there's a strong demand for temporary employees. and if you have good
5:21 am
experience, you might even be able to negotiate a higher hourly rate. i'm steve greenberg, kpix 5. ,,,,,,,,,,,,

5:25 am
elevate his games. he is extremely competitive even through -- in the regular season. um, so to say he is a different pitcher, i don't know if that's fair because i think he's given everything he's got each start. >> reporter: the key stat from game one, when a team scores three runs in the 1st inning of game one of the world series, those teams are 10-0. if the giants keep hitting like that and pitching like that, this series could go in four. game 2 today, jake peavey takes the hill for san francisco. from kauffman stadium, i'm dennis o'donnell, let's go back to you guys. >> thank you, dennis. play of the day in a game no one watched last night? michael gordon carrying the ball for arkansas state. tangled up with all the defenders but no one tackled him. his knee never touched. they are saying, go ahead, you can run. guess what, that's the touchdown. he went all the way for the score. but louisiana lafayette won the

5:32 am
as we get into the games when the giants come back to town. right now looking good. a lot of sunshine outside today. a few high clouds starting to move into our skies in the north bay. still sliding through. looks ominous but high pressure just strong enough to hold most of that rainfall to the north for today. by tomorrow, that could change. temperatures this afternoon into the 70s in the bay and the valleys, mid-70s into the warmest spots. 60s at the coast. mostly clear skies in san francisco right now. cool in the valleys this morning. 47 in santa rosa. 51 san jose. 57 san francisco. this afternoon 70s in the south bay. 72 san jose. 72 also in oakland. 68 in san francisco. 71 clouds gathering in santa rosa. time for a road check. let's go to liz. >> back out to the altamont pass, you know, it went from just kind of sluggish a little slow and go, to now we're backed up. first to the south bay.

5:34 am
the rideshare employees want to put an end to what they're calling unfair rating systems in place, pricing policies and insurance liability issues. drives will be on market street here -- drivers will be on market street here in san francisco at noon. people come from around the world for the experience but soon strolling across the golden gate bridge could come at a price. the bridge district wants to start charging a toll to pedestrians and bicyclists. it's all about money and a $33 million budget deficit. >> while we do everything we can on our side to make sure we are containing costs, we need to be sure we're increasing revenue where possible. >> it's an economic justice issue for those who want to use the bridge who don't own a car. >> i think it must be free for all. >> there used to be a 10-cent toll to walk across the bridge that ended in 1970. the bridge district could decide on the new toll on friday. also thoughts of raising tolls for vehicles by 5% every year
