Maholm (1-2) threw 84 pitches over seven innings, allowing two runs and six hits in his fourth start with the defending NL West champions. Chris Withrow struck out Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki with the bases loaded in the eighth inning to help preserve the win.

Maholm, a veteran left-hander who signed a one-year, $1.5 million contract as a free agent in February, had lost his previous seven decisions against the Rockies and was 1-8 with a 6.63 ERA in 10 career starts against them. Kenley Jansen got three outs for his ninth save.

Juan Nicasio (2-1) gave up five runs and eight hits in 4 1-3 innings for Colorado.

NATIONALS 4, PADRES 0

WASHINGTON • Tanner Roark pitched a three-hitter for his first career complete game, leading Washington to the win.

Roark set down the first 16 batters before San Diego catcher Rene Rivera, an .074 batter entering the game, hit a solid single to center field with one out in the sixth inning.

Roark (2-0) walked one and struck out eight, including Jedd Gyorko to end the game on his 105th pitch.

Ian Desmond had three hits for Washington, including a run-scoring double in the Nationals’ three-run first inning against Andrew Cashner (2-3).

BRAVES 4, REDS 1

ATLANTA • Rookie right-hander David Hale allowed only two hits over eight innings in a performance that may not be enough to save his spot in Atlanta’s rotation.

Freddie Freeman, Justin Upton and Evan Gattis each homered off Cincinnati’s Mike Leake (2-2).

Hale gave up a walk and two hits, including Ryan Ludwick’s run-scoring double, in the first inning. He didn’t allow another hit as he faced the minimum 21 batters over the next seven innings.

Cincinnati’s only other baserunner against Hale came on Jay Bruce’s leadoff walk in the fourth, and the Braves ended that inning with a double play.

Craig Kimbrel closed the combined two-hitter for his eighth save.

Hale (1-0) has a 2.31 ERA in four starts but could lose his spot in the rotation next week, when left-hander Mike Minor is expected to come off the disabled list.
