WASHINGTON (AP) — Four San Diego relievers combined to toss four scoreless innings and the Padres defeated the Washington Nationals 10-4 Sunday in the completion of a game suspended the previous night because of a shooting outside the stadium.

The teams were to play the regularly scheduled game later in the day.

Fernando Tatis Jr. had his third four-hit game of the season and scored twice for the Padres, and Tommy Pham had three hits and two walks.

The game was halted Saturday night with the Padres leading 8-4 in the middle of the sixth inning.

When the shots were heard, it was not immediately clear where they were coming from. Tatis was one of several Padres who helped shepherd fans from the stands into the San Diego dugout for shelter in what became a chaotic scene as the crowd scrambled for safety.

The shooting, an exchange of gunfire between people in two cars, left three people injured, Ashan Benedict, the Metropolitan Police Department’s executive assistant police chief, said Saturday night.

Pham singled in a run in the seventh after play resumed and a second scored on right fielder Juan Soto’s throwing error on the play.

Ryan Zimmerman homered for the Nationals, who have lost six straight and 11 of 13.

Reliever Craig Stammen (4-2) pitched a scoreless fifth inning for the win. Starter Blake Snell, who missed his last start due to a digestive issue, was reinstated from the injured list Saturday and allowed four runs on six hits and four walks in four innings.

Nationals starter Patrick Corbin (6-8) gave up six runs on 10 hits and four walks in 5 1/3 innings.

Ha Seong-Kim’s two-run double gave Snell a 5-1 lead in the third, but in the bottom half Zimmerman snapped an 0-for-15 skid with a three-run homer to center.

San Diego got RBI singles from Tatis, Jake Cronenworth and Manny Machado in the sixth to push the lead back to four runs. Machado had three hits and two RBIs.
