Over the last three years, Taco Bell has run a promotion where everyone in the U.S. can get free food, so long as there is a stolen base in the MLB World Series. Well, there was a stolen base in Game 2 this past Wednesday, which means we all get a free Doritos Locos Taco.
Neither the Los Angeles Dodgers nor Houston Astros have stolen many bases this postseason, but all it took was one, and in the 10th inning of last night’s game, Cameron Maybin of the Astros picked Brandon McCarthy’s pocket.
Per the promotion, we can go to any participating Taco Bell around the country this Nov. 1, between 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., and redeem our free taco, no purchase necessary.
Technically, the promotion would run during Game 7 of the World Series, but Dodgers should have it wrapped up by Game 6. So I can confidently say that this promotion will take place AFTER the World Series is over.
Screw the Astros, but thank you for the free taco.

Where: All participating Taco Bell locations
Why: Because the Dodgers bullpen blew it, let runners on base, let them run wild, and lost a game that should have been theirs. Sons of bi… Sorry, lost a little control there.
