You won a free taco last night.

No, you didn't actually do anything to get it. But Taco Bell is running this promotion where if someone playing in the World Series stole a base, the restaurant will give a free taco to everybody in the United States.

It's a Doritos Locos Taco. And it's only available from 2-6 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 2 (so please don't walk into a Taco Bell today and demand a free taco because we said so).

Who can you thank for this free taco? Francisco Lindor of the Cleveland Indians.

Use this site to find a Taco Bell near you. All three flavors are 170 calories, with 80-90 of those coming from fat. The Doritos Locos Tacos line has been massively successful for Taco Bell.
