MIAMI -- With the bases loaded, two outs and the score 0-0 in the bottom of the ninth
MIAMI -- With the bases loaded, two outs and the score 0-0 in the bottom of the ninth, Henderson Alvarez stood in the Miami Marlins on-deck circle, bat in hand, hoping to complete his no-hitter. Chase Allen Jersey . Alvarez had blanked the Detroit Tigers for nine innings -- and briefly, mistakenly thought he had pitched a no-hitter. But the Marlins needed a run for him to achieve the feat. "I was nervous and anxious," he said through a translator. "I started praying, Please give us a run. I was hoping for a wild pitch." Thats exactly how Miami scored. Giancarlo Stanton crossed the plate standing up when a breaking ball skipped to the backstop, and Alvarez had his no-hitter, beating the Tigers on the final day of the regular season Sunday, 1-0. Alvarez -- who had been due to hit next -- took off his batting helmet and began to celebrate with teammates in the on-deck circle while still wearing his batting gloves. When the happy hopping scrum finally broke up, pitcher Jose Fernandez came away holding Alvarezs uniform top. "They were pulling on my jersey and choking me, so I took it off," Alvarez explained. Later, the 23-year-old Venezuelan went into the stands to hug his pregnant wife and kiss her belly. Of the 282 no-hitters in history, it was the only one to end on a wild pitch, STATS said. 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. "Thats the beauty of baseball," Marlins manager Mike Redmond said. "You never know what youre going to see. On the last day of the season, what a treat." Alvarez needed the run for his no-hitter to be official, because a Major League Baseball ruling in 1991 said only complete games of nine or more innings with no hits count as no-hitters. Alvarez got it when Luke Putkonens first pitch to pinch-hitter Greg Dobbs was low and inside, eluding catcher Brayan Pena. Alvarez (5-6) struck out four, walked one and hit a batter against a patchwork Tigers lineup on the last day of the season. When he closed out the top of the ninth, he pumped one fist and then both, thinking the game was over. He remained confused until he got to the dugout and a teammate explained the situation to him. "With the emotion and nerves, I didnt realize we hadnt scored a run yet," a sheepish Alvarez said. "At the time I thought the game was 1-0. I threw my hands up and thought the game was over." Redmond said he would have sent Alvarez out to pitch the 10th inning, but that wasnt necessary. The right-hander capped a dismal season for the Marlins, who had the worst record in the NL at 62-100. He pitched the third no-hitter this year, joining Homer Bailey of Cincinnati and Tim Lincecum of San Francisco. Miami acquired Alvarez from the Toronto Blue Jays on Nov. 19 in a blockbuster trade. In that deal the Blue Jays got pitchers Mark Buehrle and Josh Johnson, as well as infielders Jose Reyes, John Buck, and Emilio Bonifacio. Toronto sent Alvarez, Adeiny Hechavarria, Jeff Mathis, Yunel Escobar, Jake Marisnick, Anthony DeSclafani and Justin Nicolino to the Marlins as part of that trade. It was the fourth season-ending no-hitter ever, and first since Mike Witt of the Angels threw a perfect game at Texas in 1984. In 1975, Vida Blue and three Oakland relievers combined to no-hit the Angels and in 1892, Bumpus Jones of Cincinnati did it against Pittsburgh, STATS said. With the Tigers playoff slot settled, they rested four starters and had pulled three others by the seventh inning. Miguel Cabrera, who won his third consecutive batting title, never stepped to the plate. The Tigers post-season assignment was determined before the weekend, and theyll start a division series at Oakland on Friday. Prior to the game, Tigers manager Jim Leyland acknowledged he and his players were already thinking ahead. "I want to play this game, I want to win this game, but I want to get this over with and get home," Leyland said. "Guys are anxious. They want to get to the post-season." Alvarez made the Tigers eagerness work to his advantage. "He had a lot of movement, and he fed off the fact they were swinging aggressively," Redmond said. Twice the Tigers were robbed of hits by fine defensive plays, including Alvarezs leaping snare of Don Kellys one-hopper before he threw to first for the second out in the ninth. Alvarez struck out Matt Tuiasosopo on a 3-2 pitch -- his 99th -- to end the top of the ninth. Then he needed the help from the Marlins offence, which is last in the majors in runs. Stanton singled with one out in the bottom of the ninth against Putkonen (1-3) and took second on a single by Logan Morrison. Both runners advanced on a wild pitch, and they held as Adeiny Hechavarria grounded out to the shortstop. After Chris Coghlan walked to load the bases, Putkonens first pitch to Dobbs got away. Stanton scored standing up with his arms raised, and the Marlins mobbed Alvarez. At last it was official: Alvarez had his no-hitter, the fifth in Marlins history, and his first since grade school. Baseball appointed an eight-man committee on statistical accuracy in 1991 that defined no-hitters. That dropped 50 disputed games from the no-hit list. Alvarez, acquired by the Marlins in a blockbuster trade with Toronto last November, was on the disabled list until early July with right shoulder inflammation. His only previous complete game was May 4, 2012, a six-hit shutout for the Blue Jays against the Angels. He hadnt pitched more than 7 1-3 innings this season, and the no-hitter came in his 58th career start. The Tigers came close to a hit several times. Shortstop Hechavarria caught Ramon Santiagos liner in the third with an acrobatic leap. Detroit pitcher Justin Verlander, who is 0 for 27 lifetime, hit a drive to right field that landed foul by a couple of feet in the sixth inning. "You need to have a little luck to throw a no-hitter," Redmond said, "and we definitely had that today." Alvarez hit Prince Fielder in the back with a breaking pitch with two out in the first inning, then retired 12 batters in a row before Jose Iglesias reached on an error by Hechavarria in the fifth. Alvarez retired another 12 in a row before he walked Andy Dirks on four pitches with two out in the ninth. Verlander struck out 10 in six scoreless innings in his final tuneup for the playoffs. The Tigers right-hander allowed only three hits -- but three more than Alvarez. "He threw a heck of a ballgame," Verlander said. "To do something like that is pretty impressive." The previous pitcher to throw a no-hitter in the Marlins 21-year history was Anibal Sanchez -- now with the Tigers -- who did it in 2006 against Arizona. Sanchez watched from the visitors dugout as his fellow Venezuelan celebrated the feat. "It was great to be a part of such an exciting moment for this guy," Sanchez said. "He threw a great game, and Im really excited he did that." The last time the Tigers were no-hit was July 26, 2010, when Tampa Bays Matt Garza beat them 5-0. "I knew I was pitching a no-hitter early in the game, that it was a gem," Alvarez said. "I really wanted to finish it." NOTES: Marlins 2B Donovan Solano was held out of the lineup but said he felt fine less than 24 hours after being hit in the helmet by a 95 mph fastball. ... Tigers pitchers had 13 strikeouts Sunday and finished with 1,428 this season, a major league record. ... The crowd of 28,315 pushed Miamis final attendance total to 1,586,322. Playing in a ballpark that opened last year, they had the second-worst average attendance in the majors, ahead of only Tampa Bay. Anthony Steen Jersey . scored 18 of his career- high 28 points in the first half, as fifth-ranked Ohio State dominated No. Cameron Wake Jersey . Off-season additions Jermain Defoe and Michael Bradley did not train with the club today, prompting Nelsen to declare its too early to tell if either will be ready for Saturday. http://www.shopdolphinsauthenticnfl.com/...te-Jersey/ . The Vancouver coach and an announced sellout crowd of 18,910 watched in dismay as the Canucks lost 7-4 to the New York Islanders on Monday night by squandering a 3-0 lead in the third period.ATLANTA -- There was no way Julio Teheran was leaving the game after Eric Campbells liner hit his right leg and bounced toward third base in the fourth inning. Teheran was determined to pitch through the pain, especially after the Braves gave him three runs in the first. Chris Johnson hit a three-run double, Teheran overcame the injury scare to pitch seven strong innings and Atlanta beat the New York Mets 3-1 Wednesday night to complete a three-game sweep. The Braves extended their season-best winning streak to seven games, but perhaps the best news was that Teheran wasnt hurt. Atlanta, which placed catcher Evan Gattis on the 15-day disabled list this week with a bulging disk in his back, couldnt afford another key injury as it battles Washington for the NL East lead. Teheran said his lower right leg was "burning" after he was struck by the liner. "I wanted to stay in the game so bad," Teheran said. With manager Fredi Gonzalez and assistant trainer Jim Lovell watching from behind the mound, Teheran tested the leg with a few throws to the plate and stayed in. Teheran (8-5) gave up four hits and three walks while lowering his ERA to 2.29. "He gave us a great outing," Gonzalez said. "The last two innings, it was a gut check. He got himself in trouble and made some great pitches." Jordan Walden pitched a perfect ninth for his third save as closer Craig Kimbrel received a night off. The Mets have lost four straight and seven of their last eight games and are a season-worst 11 games below .500. They hope to have David Wright is back in the lineup when they open a home series against Texas on Friday night. Wright remained in New York this week to receive treatment for his bruised left rotator cuff. "Obviously we miss Davids bat in the lineup, theres no doubt," Mets manager Terry Collins said. "We competed as good as we can compete." The Braves remain a half-game ahead of Washington. Atlantas winning streak includes a four-game sweep at Philadelphia and its first sweep of the Mets since September 2012 at New York. The seven-game streak is Atlantas longest since 14 straight from Julyy 26-Aug. Mark Clayton Jersey. 7 last season. New York rookie Jacob deGrom (1-5) again battled his season-long control problems in a long first inning. The Braves, helped by two walks from deGrom, loaded the bases with no outs in the first. Atlanta was in danger of wasting the opportunity before Johnson lined the three-run double past Campbell at third base with two outs. After throwing 37 pitches in the first, deGrom didnt walk another batter or allow another run. He gave up three runs on six hits in five innings. "That first inning got me," deGrom said. "I think I was a little amped up, just trying to maybe overthrow it a little bit in the first. To recover from that was good. I wanted to at least get to five (innings)." Eric Young Jr. singled, stole second, advanced to third on a wild pitch and scored on Curtis Grandersons fly ball to left field in the fourth inning. Young reached on another single in the sixth before being picked off first base by Teheran. Teheran gave up a single to Juan Lagares and walked Granderson before striking out Campbell to end the sixth. Lagares had a one-out single off Anthony Vavaro in the eighth. Daniel Murphy hit a sharp grounder toward second base that Tommy La Stella caught while diving toward the bag. While on the ground, La Stella flipped the ball to Andrelton Simmons for the force out at second. La Stella started after leaving Tuesday nights game with a right foot that was bruised when he was hit by a pitch. NOTES: Gonzalez said the team will have a better estimate on a recovery period for Gattis when the success of Tuesdays epidural can be evaluated in about four days. Gonzalez said he has "not even entertained" the thought of Gattis playing left field when he returns to possibly take pressure off his back. ... The first-pitch temperature was 91 degrees, and Braves were allowed to report later than normal and take batting practice in the indoor cage "to let their bodies recharge a little bit." ... Both teams are off Thursday. The Mets open a home series against Texas on Friday night, and the Braves homestand continues with a weekend series against Arizona.
