The Miami Marlins’ Henderson Alvarez finished off the 2013 season with a no-hitter that ended with a walk-off wild pitch, five years ago today.
Alvarez, pitching at Marlins Park on Sunday, September 29, 2013, no-hit the Detroit Tigers through nine innings, but the Marlins couldn’t score a single run. Miami loaded the bases in the bottom of the ninth, and then Luke Putkonen plunked pinch-hitter Greg Dobbs, sending Giancarlo Stanton home for the 1-0 no-hit victory.
Alvarez was standing in the on-deck circle, with no chance to bat, when the celebration ensued.
