PHILADELPHIA, May 4 (UPI) -- Jose Fernandez logged his first major-league win Saturday, yielding only one hit over seven innings in the Miami Marlins' 2-0 whitewash of Philadelphia.

Fernandez (1-2), the Marlins' 2011 first-round draft choice out of Tampa, Fla., was making his sixth big-league start. He baffled the Phillies, setting down 17 straight batters after yielding a first-inning single to Freddy Galvis.

The 20-year-old right-hander issued one walk and struck out nine en route to the milestone win.

Mike Dunn tossed a 1-2-3 eighth and Steve Cishek notched his fourth save, competing the one-hitter as the Marlins broke a three-game skid.

Marcell Ozuna socked his first major league homer and Chris Valaika added a solo shot, providing Miami's offense.

Cole Hamels (1-4) took the loss for the Phillies despite yielding just two runs on six hits over eight innings.
