ATLANTA (AP) — The second game of a split doubleheader between the San Diego Padres and Atlanta Braves was suspended by rain in the middle of the fifth inning.

The game will resume at a date yet to be determined.

San Diego was leading 5-4 when the game was called after a 3-hour, 3-minute delay.

Fernando Tatis Jr. hit a two-run homer and starting pitcher Chris Paddack reversed his recent struggles as the Padres won the opener 3-2.
