Henderson Alvarez Throws No-Hitter – VIDEO

Miami Marlins pitcher Henderson Alvarez threw a no-hitter on Sunday, as the Miami Marlins downed the Detroit Tigers, 1-0, on the final day of the 2013 Major League Baseball regular season schedule.

What made this no-hitter a little different is that Alvarez earned the win in the on deck circle, and not the pitchers mound.

Miami won the game in the bottom half of the ninth inning, with Giancarlo Stanton scoring on a wild pitch, while Alvarez looked on in the on-deck circle.

The no-hitter, the third this season, and the 282 in MLB history, was the only one to end on a wild pitch, and it was the first walk-off complete-game no-hitter since Virgil Trucks of the Tigers threw one on May 15, 1952, against Washington.

The 23-year old Alvarez, who mistakenly thought the Marlins were up, 1-0, when he completed the top half of the ninth inning, walked one, hit a batter, and struck out four, earning his fifth victory of the season.
