Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Jose Fernandez dazzled Philadelphia hitters over seven scoreless innings to guide the Miami Marlins to a 2-0 win over the Phillies on Saturday.

Fernandez (1-2) allowed just one hit and two baserunners during his stint and retired 17 straight batters before issuing a walk in the seventh inning. The 20-year-old rookie also struck out a career-high nine to earn his first career win in the majors.

Marcell Ozuna and Chris Valaika both clubbed solo homers for the Marlins, who had dropped three straight entering the contest.

Freddy Galvis provided the lone hit for the Phillies, who were shut out for the fifth time this season. Cole Hamels (1-4) allowed four hits, including both homers, while striking out six over eight innings.
