MIAMI (AP) - The right-hander who threw a no-hitter on the final day of the regular season for the Miami Marlins might be only the third- or fourth-best young arm in their rotation.
That's how good the Marlins' pitching is.
Henderson Alvarez no-hit the Detroit Tigers on Sunday, and the Marlins scored on a wild pitch in the bottom of the ninth to win 1-0. The victory provided an exhilarating finish to a dismal season for the Marlins, who lost 100 games and had the worst offense in the majors by far.
Their shortcomings overshadowed a talented pitching staff that won raves, if not a lot of games, stirring hope for a quick turnaround.
