Sept 29 (Reuters) - Henderson Alvarez of the Miami Marlins pitched a no-hitter against the Detroit Tigers in the regular season finale on Sunday when the Marlins scored in the bottom of the ninth for a 1-0 victory.
Alvarez, who struck out four and walked just one, had taken the no-hitter into the ninth of the scoreless game.
With the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the ninth, reliever Luke Putkonen threw a wild pitch past catcher Brayan Pena that allowed Giancarlo Stanton to score from third base for the game-ending run.
Right-hander Alvarez, 23, improved to 5-6 for the season.
