Sporting a 5-6 record as of early this week with nine scheduled games left in the 2023 campaign, the Revere High School baseball team has a legitimate shot at a postseason tournament spot. But it will take some strong play over the final few weeks of the regular season to get that accomplished.
Entering Wednesday’s scheduled game at Medford, Revere had lost three of its previous four contests. The one victory was a 16-2 rout of Chelsea last Saturday. Before that contest, the Patriots came up short in a close 8-6 battle last Thursday against their Greater Boston League rival the Lynn Classical Rams.
A number of contests have been postponed recently due to the rainy weather. After Wednesday’s game against Medford, the Patriots were scheduled to face East Boston on the road in an unusual Sunday morning tilt on May 7. From there, they host league foe Malden on Tuesday, May 9.
Revere softball continues to battle
The young Revere High School softball team, which has just two seniors and 13 underclassmen, including a combined eight sophomores and freshmen, on this year’s varsity squad, is looking to continue to battle over the remainder of the season. The Patriots have been dangerous offensively and have scored in the double digits on several occasions this season.
Recently, Revere lost a hard-fought 16-14 game against Somerville before being edged, 25-24, by East Boston in a wild, high-scoring affair at St. Mary’s Park last Tuesday. The Patriots also lost, 14-4, to Lynn Classical last Wednesday.
With a rain postponement on Monday, Revere was scheduled to play Medford on Wednesday, weather permitting. The Patriots play at O’Bryant on Friday and host Chelsea on Monday, May 8.
