Miami, FL - Miami Marlins right-hander Henderson Alvarez had not allowed a hit after nine innings Sunday, but the game against the Detroit Tigers was scoreless heading to the bottom of the ninth.

Alvarez had struck out four, walked one and hit a batter. Twice the Tigers were robbed of hits by fine defensive plays, including Alvarez's leaping snare of Don Kelly's 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.

Baseball appointed an eight-man committee on statistical accuracy in 1991 that defined no-hitters as games of nine innings or more that ended with no hits. That dropped 50 disputed games from the no-hit list.
