WASHINGTON – Tanner Roark pitched a three-hitter for the first complete game of his career as the Washington Nationals beat the San Diego Padres 4-0 on Saturday.

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. The 27-year-old right-hander extended his run of consecutive scoreless innings to 18, improved to 4-0 in his career at Nationals Park. In 35 innings there he has given up one earned run.

Ian Desmond had three hits for Washington, including a run-scoring double — the game’s only extra-base hit — which highlighted a three-run first inning off losing pitcher Andrew Cashner (2-3).
