Xaverian Brothers outlasted St. John’s Shrewsbury by a score of 1-0 in a game that went nine innings, BC High went to extra innings to beat Catholic Memorial 1-0 and Malden Catholic beat St. John’s Prep by a score of 5-3. Silver Lake stumbled again losing to Hingham 4-3 and Reading outlasted highly ranked Belmont 2-1 in another nine inning game.

The month of May will make or break many teams with hopes of reaching the big tournament.
Ten of the biggest storylines in Mass high school baseball in April 2017
Undefeated and top ranked Braintree loses to a very good Brookline team 6-4 and then Brookline loses to Needham 10-0. Yup, it has been that kind of month with a lot of surprising results.
St. John’s Prep has been cruising along including a big 5-0 victory over Lincoln-Sudbury but the recent loss of star Mike Yarin to injury takes a top player out of their lineup.
North Andover pitchers Sebastian Keane and Anthony Sapienza have led the Knights to a perfect record over the first half of the season.
Nate Espelin struck out 19 batters (including the last 18 in a row) to lead upstart Belmont over Wilmington 1-0 earlier this season.
Some of last year’s top Super 8 teams including BC High, Xaverian Brothers and Newton North have all played very difficult schedules so far this season and all have a few losses as a result.
Baseball down on Cape Cod had an excellent month with teams like Falmouth, Nauset, Mashpee and Barnstable all playing very well early in the season.
Junior Mike Pierro came up with the big hit to lead highly ranked Central Catholic to a big 6-5 comeback win over St. Peter-Marian in one of the better games played in April.
Lowell’s Dalton Quinn pitched in extra innings and then scored the go-ahead run in their huge 7-3 win over BC High earlier this season.
Silver Lake had been cruising along including a win over defending state champion West Springfield before recently losing to Hanover by a score of 6-3.
Lynn Classical played a very solid month of baseball as the Rams have been led by pitcher David Barnard.
