Varela scored 15 runs in the last four innings to defeat host Southwest, 20-10, at Palmetto Bay Park. The Vipers (6-2, 3-1) jumped out to a 5-0 lead before the Eagles scored in the bottom of the second inning. Natalia Menendez was hit by a pitch to lead off, took second on a sacrifice bunt by Brianna Mantrana and scored on a double over the left fielder's head by Nicole Murillo. Southwest cut the lead to 5-3 in the home half of the third when Menendez doubled home Camila Broz and advanced Ailen Hernandez to third. Hernandez raced home on a wild pitch. The Eagles scored a single run in the fifth when Broz singled home Amanda Medina, who had walked and stole second. Southwest had a five-run sixth inning. Gabriela Brenes, who was 4-for-4 on the evening, singled home Menendez and Mantrana with the first two runs, Medina doubled home Brenes and pinch-runner Ashley Chirinos with two more runs, and Broz singled home Medina to close out the rally. The Eagles' final run came in the seventh when Mantrana singled, advanced to second on a force play, took third on another Brenes single and scored on a throwing error. Southwest (0-13, 0-6) continues to struggle on the mound as they await medical clearance for starting pitcher Bethanie Penna to return from her injury.

Gabriela Brenes was 4-for-4 for the Eagles
