Burke at South Boston, Wednesday, 3 p.m., at Kirby Field
With a 4-1 record, Burke is the surprise team of the season so far. It is in third in the North Division, behind East Boston and O’Bryant after beating Fenway, Madison Park, West Roxbury, and Boston International. All of those victories were by considerable margins except for the 13-11 win against West Roxbury.
South Boston (1-2) is trying to get its act together after a 14-3 loss to New Mission April 22.
O’Bryant at East Boston, Thursday, 3 p.m., at City Yards
This should be a good one, despite the team records being almost opposite of each other.
East Boston (1-4) is battle-tested against nonleague opponents Rockport, Billerica, Lynnfield, and Bishop Fenwick and is still at the top of the North Division with a 1-0 league record.
O’Bryant 7-0 in the north division, therefore this game could have huge implications for the city championship seeds when things shake out at the end of May.
New Mission at Brighton, Friday, 3:30 p.m., at Cleveland Circle
With New Mission's team almost entirely made up of Boston Community Leadership Academy students who were part of the Brighton softball team last year, emotions will be running high.
And even though the Titans are sitting in second place in the South Division with a 2-2 record, the last-place Bengals (0-3) will be up for this one as well as they look to get their first win of the season against their old teammates.
