Houston Astro Cameron Maybin stole second base in Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday night.

Great move for his time, which beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 7-6 to tie the series 1-1.

Better move for the whole country, which now gets free Doritos Locos Tacos from Taco Bell. That’s what happens with the fast-food chain’s “Steal a Base, Steal a Taco” promotion.

“Maybin came through in the crunch with the stolen base heard ’round the world,” Taco Bell says on its website. “And at Taco Bell, we believe one great steal deserves another.”

So on Wednesday, Nov. 1, participating Taco Bells throughout the U.S. will give each customer one Doritos Locos Taco between 2 and 6 p.m. Of course, the fine print adds that “while supplies last” qualifier, so get there early.

This is the sixth time since 2007 that the chain has served up the deal. The most recent steal was when Francisco Lindor of the Cleveland Indians took second base in Game 1 of the World Series last year.
