BASEBALL

Monday: Fenway at Charlestown, at Ryan, 3:30 - The two squads are neck and neck in the standings with Fenway (7-5) just two games better than Townies (5-6). The way the two teams currently sit in the standings, they’d both make the city tournament. However, a loss could throw a speed bump into Charlestown’s road to the postseason. A win Monday is crucial for the Townies.

Tuesday: Latin Academy at Brookline, 3:45 - The Dragons are a solid 9-6 in league action, but are just 1-3 out of conference. They’ll look to pick up their second non-league victory, which will solidify them as one of the teams to beat come tournament time.

Tuesday: Boston International at English, 3:30 - Both teams are poised to make the City tournament, and Tuesday’s match-up could be a preview of the city league championship game. Look for the winner to go on a roll in the final week and bring that momentum to the semifinals on Saturday.

Wednesday: Fenway at Snowden, at Rice, 3:30 - Snowden sits at just 3-7, and Wednesday's game should be a victory for the Panthers. However, Snowden has a hard working squad and will put up a fight, giving Fenway a good workout in their last regular season game before the tournament.

Thursday: Chelsea at East Boston, 3:30 - The Jets are a 5-1 in league action but have yet to win a non-league tilt. A win over Chelsea will give East Boston a big confidence boost heading into the postseason. Chelsea won the previous matchup, 10-6.

SOFTBALL

Monday: New Mission at South Boston, at Kirby, 3:30 - Monday’s game is a good chance for South Boston to pick up a victory over the winless Titans. A win would solidify South Boston as a tournament contender.

Tuesday: Boston International at Madison Park, 4 - The Cardinals are on the cusp of making the city tournament. A win over Boston International would push them in the right direction with only one more game remaining, a tilt with Wayland on Thursday.

Wednesday: Latin Academy at Melrose, 3:30 - The Dragons are a perfect 7-0 in city league action but have struggled in its non-conference contests. They’ll look at Wednesday’s game with Melrose as a final challenge before heading to the tournament semifinals.

Thursday: South Boston at O’Bryant, at Madison Park, 3 - Both teams are in position to make the postseason, but will be fighting to win Thursday’s matchup to gain momentum heading into the postseason.

Thursday: East Boston at Brookline, 3:45 - The Jets are 8-0 in conference action but sit at 1-6 in their non-league games. They’re in position to be the top seed in the North heading into the tournament and will have Thursday’s game to work out any kinks before the semifinals on Saturday.
