McCarthy throws shutout for 1st victory of year

Posted: Updated:

Brandon McCarthy pitched a three-hit complete-game shutout for his first win since being struck in the head by a line drive last season in the Arizona Diamondbacks' 1-0 victory over the Miami Marlins on Saturday night.

Gerardo Parra led off the game with a home run for Arizona, which has won four in a row while dealing the Marlins a season-long seven-game losing streak.

McCarthy (1-3) struck out five and walked two while throwing 68 of 99 pitches for strikes in his third career shutout, first since Sept. 3, 2011, against Seattle.
