Recap: Miami vs. Arizona

Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Brandon McCarthy tossed his third career shutout and got his first win since undergoing emergency brain surgery, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the Miami Marlins, 1-0, in the middle test of a three-game series.

On Sept. 5, 2012, as a member of the Athletics, McCarthy (1-3) took a line drive to the head off the bat of Erick Aybar and suffered an epidural hemorrhage, brain contusion and a skull fracture. He underwent surgery that night and was discharged six days later, but didn't pitch for the rest of the season.

McCarthy, making his ninth start of the season, allowed just three hits and two walks while striking out five, as the Diamondbacks won their fourth straight game. It was his seventh career complete game.

"The wins for us is the only thing I care about at all," McCarthy said. "My stats is really inconsequential."

Gerardo Parra hit a home run to right field off the first pitch thrown by Marlins starter Tom Koehler (0-2), who allowed just two more hits and fanned seven over six frames.

"He looked really good, threw some nice breaking balls, other than that first pitch," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said.

The Marlins have lost seven straight games.

Miami's best opportunity to score came in the bottom of the first. Derek Dietrich was walked with two outs and advanced to second on a single by Marcell Ozuna. Chris Coghlan then singled to right, but Dietrich was thrown out at the plate, thanks to a great throw by Parra.

Ozuna was the last player to get on base for the Marlins, when he drew a walk to lead off the seventh and later advanced on a balk, and McCarthy retired the final nine batters to end the game.
