May 18, 2013 at 9:47 PM

MIAMI, May 18 (UPI) -- Brandon McCarthy fired his second career shutout Saturday, baffling the Marlins on three hits in the Arizona Diamondbacks' 1-0 decision over Miami.

McCarthy (1-3) earned his first win of the season in his ninth start after firing eight shutout frames in his previous outing -- a no-decision against the Phillies.

The right-hander allowed two walks and struck out five in the 100-pitch gem.

Gerardo Parra homered on the first pitch of the game to provide the only run for the D-backs, who reeled off a fourth straight win.

The Marlins' Tom Koehler (0-2) absorbed the hard-luck loss, surrendering one run on three hits over six innings.
