Glendale (0-2) never led and couldn't catch hard-charging Burroughs (2-1). The Indians scored three runs on wild pitches by Glendale pitcher Amy Bishop (0-2), and another on a fielding error.
Burroughs first-year Coach Nick Schepperle couldn't have asked for a better start in the new league.
"We like to be aggressive and take what teams will give us," Schepperle said. "It's always good to get that first league win under your belt, and you hope it gets you on a roll.
"We took advantage of their mistakes and we were patient offensively. The Pacific League is different from the Foothill League, and I'd be lying if I said anything differently."
The Nitros, who finished fourth in league last season, got two hits apiece from center fielder Melissa Legaspi and designated player Courtney Williams.
After that, not much went right for the Nitros.
Glendale Coach Cyndee Bennett said the Nitros appeared nervous during parts of the contest, which featured Burroughs scoring at least one run in the first four innings.
"Our team is young, and there's a lot of youth out there," said Bennett, a former Glendale standout. "There are nerves out there because of the new league.
"I thought we progressed as the game went on, and I can't ask for anything more. Burroughs ran the bases aggressively and that's good for us to see because every game is going to be a learning experience."
The Indians scored twice in the first on a single by Terry and another on a wild pitch. Glendale responded in the bottom of the inning on a groundout by Bishop that scored Legaspi.
Burroughs put the game away in the second with four runs, highlighted by a run-scoring single by Kerry Hodgins and a sacrifice fly by Brianna Casillas.
The Nitros scored two runs on a wild pitch uncorked by Peters (1-0) that cut Burroughs' lead to 8-3.
That was the lone mistake made by Peters, a right-hander who held the Nitros in check. Terry, who had two singles and one triple, relieved Peters to start the fourth and pitched four scoreless innings.
Block notched a single, double and triple.
Bishop, a right-hander, finished with four strikeouts.
"It's important that we learn from our mistakes," Bennett said. "Had we had more experience under our belts, then maybe we would have had a better showing.
"You have to be close to perfect in league and we need to be consistently peeking."
