Nitros catcher Samantha Dickens (two for four) got the rally started with a triple deep into the gap in left-center field with one out in the sixth and her team trailing, 7-5.
Marielle Malabug, who was four for four on the day with an RBI and two runs, pulled Glendale to within one run with a double and moved to third base on a single by Ilene Suleymanyan, who went two for four.
Abby Nagy drove in the game-tying run with a single to right field, leaving runners at first and second for Veliz. Following her game-winning triple, Veliz scored the final run of the frame on a single to center field by Regina Alcazar that put Glendale up, 10-7.
“We told them their confidence has to come from within and, provided they have that every game, they’ll be able to hit the ball successfully,” said Glendale Coach Christine Paknik, whose team, at 3-1, is in a three-way tie for second place in league with Burbank and Burroughs. “It finally came together in this game.”
Glendale put out a two-out rally by Arcadia in the top of the seventh before the Apaches could do more than one run of damage, preserving the complete-game win for sophomore pitcher Casey Ramirez.
“She held tight for seven innings and finished hard,” Paknik said of Ramirez, who struck out eight and went two for four with one RBI.
Arcadia took a 2-0 lead in the first inning on a sacrifice fly by Angie Possemato and an RBI single by Alex Caskie.
Glendale got one run back in the bottom of the second on an RBI single by Ramirez to score Veliz, who reached on a leadoff triple.
The Nitros took their first lead with four runs in the bottom of the third inning.
Malabug singled to left to start the rally and scored to tie the game on a Veliz single.
