July 8, 2011

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. — That’s right: It’s here again, and according to the now-retired teacher who keeps track of such, well, oddities, there are only two more such dates left in this century.

Once again, today — July 9, 2011 — is Odd Day, according to Ron Gordon, who recently retired as a teacher in the Sequoia-Union School District in Redwood City, Calif.

If you’re still confused: Today is Odd Day because the date — 07.09.11 — is a correct sequence of odd numbers.

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Leading 2-1, DuBois added five insurance runs in the top of the seventh inning after a controversial call seemed to change the momentum, and it went on to win 7-1 in Junior League softball All-Star action Thursday in Punxsutawney.

DuBois' No. 8 hitter, Shelbie Jamison, led off the seventh with a double to the left field fence.

The next hitter, Emily Krise, hit a ground ball in the hole between the shortstop and the third baseman.

DuBois starting pitcher Noah Schneider picked up the win, pitching four innings and allowing two runs.
