Snowden at Dorchester, 3:30 p.m. Monday

In their first game after spring break, both Snowden and Dorchester will try to not only try to shake off the rust on Monday afternoon but also try to get back to business as usual after last week’s Boston Marathon bombing.

Dorchester is 1-1 with a win against Madison Park and a one-run loss to New Mission. Snowden beat Fenway before ending its game against Madison Park in a 13-13 tie.

Fenway at Madison Park, 4 p.m. Wednesday

Madison Park is still searching for its first win of the season and a game against 0-3 Fenway could be just what the Cardinals need to get going.

Madison Park’s last outing was a 26-14 loss to Burke and they have also lost to Dorchester. Fenway has given up more than 20 runs twice in losses to Snowden, Burke and O’Bryant this year.

O’Bryant at New Mission, 3:30 p.m. Wednesday

Testing itself against the gold standard in the Boston City League, Latin Academy, on April 8, New Mission’s revamped softball squad fell 11-1. Now the Titans will be looking to get back on track against another city league softball power, O’Bryant, on Wednesday.

But O’Bryant is also coming off a 6-2 loss against Latin Academy and will be trying to end a two-game slide against the Titans on Wednesday.
