Focus on Tampa Bay: Which Jameis Winston awaits 49ers?

Perhaps no one will determine the fate of the 49ers’ third season opener under coach Kyle Shanahan more than enigmatic Tampa Bay quarterback Jameis Winston. If the former Heisman Trophy winner resembles the man whose 117.2 passer rating led to a 27-9 win over the 49ers in Week 12 last year, San Francisco may be in trouble. If Winston is the guy who was benched twice a year ago in favor of journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick, the 49ers could win their first road game in two years. Here’s a closer look at San Francisco’s Week 1 game: Game essentials: 49ers at Tampa Bay, Sunday at 1:25 p.m. (PT) on Fox-TV. Odds: Pick ’em. Three reasons for 49ers’ optimism: 1. Only the Raiders had a worse defense than the Buccaneers last season and Tampa Bay lost its two best defenders from 2018 when Kwon Alexander left for the 49ers and Gerald McCoy joined the Panthers. 2. These are hardly Jon Gruden’s Buccaneers. Tampa Bay, which hasn’t made the playoffs since 2007, is the consensus pick to finish in the NFC South cellar, 3. New 49ers pass rushers…

Here’s how Raiders made sure ‘Hard Knocks’ wasn’t a distraction

If there’s an afterlife, somewhere on Tuesday night Al Davis was smiling through gritted teeth and pumping his fist after the Raiders one-upped the NFL establishment again. And make no mistake, the final episode of HBO’s “Hard Knocks” was the culmination of a nearly two-month victory march for the Silver & Black. The Raiders couldn’t stop NFL Films’ cameras from invading their training camp for the docuseries, but they made damn sure they stifled the process. HBO was left with much more immaterial footage than usual because, unlike every other team documented, the Raiders cloaked their player cuts — i.e. the most compelling drama — in secrecy. All but one of the more than 50 players who were let go by the Raiders while the crew was on site had their NFL dreams crushed off camera. New general manager Mike Mayock told reporters on Saturday he had tears in his eyes during many of the nearly 40 gut-wrenching meetings on Friday and Saturday while informing players they didn’t make the team. But without HBO documenting them, the human emotion from those cuts was certainly lost…

ROSEVILLE (CBS13) — Roseville police arrested three suspects Saturday for the attempted burglary of a store on Douglas Boulevard. Police said they were dispatched to the store on the 1900 block of Douglas Boulevard Aug. 31.

READ: Man Loses Five Family Members In Deadly Dive Boat Fire According to police, the surveillance footage showed the suspects working together to take items and hide them, with the intent of leaving without paying.

Flaherty Gem, DeJong Fluke Hit Lift Cards Over Giants 1-0

ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis manager Mike Shildt tried to find the right words to describe Jack Flaherty’s one-hit effort over eight innings. “He was stellar. He was impressive,” Shildt said. “You can throw a lot of superlatives out there about his performance.” Flaherty dazzled in another dominant performance, Marcell Ozuna homered and the Cardinals — with a fluky foul ball-turned-base hit — beat the San Francisco Giants 1-0 Tuesday night. Flaherty (9-7) carried a no-hitter into the sixth inning and cruised with eight strikeouts and a walk. The 23-year-old right-hander threw a career-high 113 pitches, 84 for strikes, and lowered his ERA to 0.90 over his past 11 starts dating to July 7. “I was in rhythm with Yadi (Molina) all day,” Flaherty said. “I had three pitches for strikes. I’ve been preaching execution.” He faced 26 hitters and threw just 29 balls. “I think that’s kind of crazy,” Flaherty said. “I don’t think about how many strikes I’m throwing. I just try to fill up the zone and get ahead of guys. It’s more fun to be ahead of guys.” Mike Yastrzemski…

Wheatland Swarmed By Mosquitoes Over Labor Day Weekend, Using Plane For Additional Fogging

WHEATLAND (CBS13) — The city of Wheatland is breathing a sigh of relief for clear skies on Tuesday after a certain buzz was removed from the air. “We saw other people running to the store that around the corner here just to try to keep from the mosquitoes getting to them,” Lucy Ray said. Some people found different ways to get rid of the bugs. “The towel like that! Like that!” Saven Hang said excitedly as she was demonstrated swatting mosquitoes. Jasmine Pedraza said the pesky bugs are littered on her porch after they tried feasting on her and her kids. “That was the main priority for them to try to not get bit, so they didn’t get any infection or West Nile,” Pedraza said. The Sutter Yuba Mosquito and Vector Control District said an irrigation north of Wheatland has caused a large hatch of mosquitoes impacting the town. District staff has worked through the weekend with wide-area truck fogging in and around Wheatland to reduce mosquito numbers.

Hoarding Horror: Arson Nearly Wipes Out Neighboring Homes In Solano County

SUISUN CITY (CBS13) — Broken down cars in the driveway, trash piled to the ceiling in the garage, all created a nightmare situation for firefighters battling a house fire Monday. This is the second time this known hoarder home has caught on fire. Now CBS13 is learning there’s not much the city or first responders can do to stop hoarding situations. One neighbor said, “Nothing’s ever been done seriously about it, and now this happened.” For 10 years, the property has been loaded with trash, from front to back. “There was a lot of rodents coming out of that area,” said neighbor Rick Pracht. READ: Man Loses Five Family Members In Deadly Dive Boat Fire From floor to ceiling, miscellaneous items and trash littered the home. The garage was stuffed to the brim. Monday, someone poured a gas-like substance on the front lawn and set a match. “It was very scary, it was so real to be that close,” said Ruth Forney. Forney lives next door and heard a bang at the door. It was a neighbor warning her to get out. “It was a banging…
