Stat Line of the Night — 9/29/2013 — Henderson Alvarez
How does the worst (or second-worst) team in Major League Baseball get some recognition on the final day of a 162-game season? Easy. Have your pitcher deliver a no-hitter .
That is exactly what Henderson Alvarez did during the Miami Marlins’ season finale against the Detroit Tigers yesterday, as he allowed zero hits and just one walk over nine shutout innings during the Marlins’ thrilling 1-0 walk-off victory.
With the win, the Marlins close out another disappointing season with a 62-100 record. But at least they went out on a strong note, as Alvarez’s no-hitter earns him “The Stat Line of the Night” for Sunday, September 29, 2013.
