Alvarez gets no-hitter on walk-off wild pitch
Miami, FL (Sports Network) - Henderson Alvarez pitched the fifth no-hitter in Marlins history, as Miami finished the season in style with a 1-0 win over the Detroit Tigers on Sunday.
Alvarez (5-6) struck out four and walked one, with another man reaching base on an error, but the game went into the ninth inning with no score.
With Luke Putkonen (1-3) on the mound, Giancarlo Stanton singled with one out and Logan Morrison followed with a base hit. A wild pitch moved the runners up a base, but Adeiny Hechavarria grounded out to short for the second out.
Chris Coghlan then walked to load the bases, bringing Koyie Hill to the plate with Alvarez on deck.
Putkonen, though, uncorked a wild pitch that got past Brayan Pena and Stanton raced home for the score to give Alvarez his no-hitter.
It's the first time a Marlin has thrown a no-hitter since Anibal Sanchez turned the trick on Sept. 6, 2006 against Arizona.
