Henderson Alvarez threw the 5th no-hitter in Miami Marlins history, Sunday. It will go down as one of the strangest in MLB history.
Alvarez made it through 9 no-hit innings, but did not get to celebrate a win. The Marlins remained in a 0-0 tie with the Tigers, after Justin Verlander pitched a gem.
But in a unique situation, the Marlins were able to squeeze out their first run of the game in the bottom of the 9th against the AL Central Champions.
Miami was able to load the bases with 2-outs and get the winning run when Luke Putkonen threw a wild pitch, allowing Giancarlo Stanton to come home and begin the celebration for Alvarez, a half-inning too late.
The 2013 Miami Marlins, what a strange year.
