Pirate Pedro Alvarez Broke Up Michael Wacha’s Game 4 No-Hitter With A Monster 8th Inning Homer

Pedro Alvarez, you have impeccable timing (GIF via SB Nation):
Unfortunately for the Pirates, they followed up this enormous momentum swing by bringing in a pinch-runner (Josh Harrison) who got caught stealing second, and then striking out to end the inning. Derp.
