The One Hit, One Homer Report

by Bill Chuck on October 8, 2013

Michael Wacha took his no-hit bid into the 8th inning before Pedro Alvarez homered, the only hit Wacha allowed and the only hit the Bucs mustered as the Cards won, 2-1, and St. Louis forced a winner-take-all Game 5 in the NL Division Series at home. St. Louis is 7-1 over the last three years with its season on the line.

There were two other one hit, one homer games this season
