Alvarez No - Hits Tigers

September 29, 2013 Updated Sep 29, 2013 at 5:13 PM EDT

MIAMI -- Henderson Alvarez pitched a no - hitter with a most bizarre ending, celebrating in the on - deck circle when the Miami Marlins scored on a two-out wild pitch in the bottom of the ninth inning to beat the American League Central Division champion Detroit Tigers 1 - 0 Sunday.

After Alvarez finished off the ninth with the game scoreless, he had to wait to see if it would become an official no - hitter. A Major League Baseball ruling in 1991 said only complete games of nine or more innings with no hits would count. It was the first no-hitter 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 Marlins said.
