The Miami Marlins and Washington Nationals get to face off for the final game of the 2014 season, and in that game the team has a chance to do what seemed impossible at the start of the year: finish in a tie for second place. And guess who is on the mound for today's contest against a Nationals team with nothing to play for? Henderson Alvarez, owner of the season-ending no-hitter from last year! He'll face off against Jordan Zimmermann in the finale.

Alvarez threw a no-hitter on the final game of the season last year in Miami. It's not going to happen again, but it's totally worth mentioning #MJIJ.
