Red Sox’ Mookie Betts steals a base and everyone gets a free taco
After getting to first on a hit in the bottom of the first inning, Red Sox right fielder Mookie Betts was looking at stealing a base all the way.
He took off for second on Los Angeles starter Clayton Kershaw’s first pitch to Andrew Benintendi.
In a World Series promotion Taco Bell said they would give away tacos if anyone stole a base during the playoffs.
With Betts stolen base, Taco Bell will give away free Doritos Locos Tacos on Nov. 1 from 2-6 p.m. at locations around the country.
He joins a “Taco Hall of Fame” according to the company that includes recent inductees Houston Astros’ Cameron Maybin from last year and Cleveland Indians’ Francisco Lindor from 2016.
Watch the play:
After the game speaking to Fox Sports, Betts talked about the stolen base and about being aggressive, as well as tacos.
“It was just one of those things [where] we said to be aggressive early, try to get a run across,” Betts explained.
“On top of that, I just wanted some tacos.”
