Taco Bell promised that a stolen base in the World Series would win everyone a free breakfast and Lorenzo Cain took them up on it in the very first game. The company will pay up on Nov. 5.

Thanks to Cain's stolen base for the Kansas City Royals in the sixth inning Taco Bell will be dishing out its A.M. Crunchwraps to all comers as part of its "Steal a Base, Steal a Breakfast" promotion during the World Series.

"In Game 1 of the World Series, Lorenzo Cain stole a base. But really, he stole A.M. Crunchwraps for all of America. Run into Taco Bell on Thursday, Nov. 5 between 7-11 a.m. to score your free A.M. Crunchwrap," said a message on the Taco Bell website on Wednesday.

According to USA Today baseball editor Gabe Lacques, Cain celebrated the stolen base and the Royals dramatic 5-4 victory in Game 1 of the World Series by mentioning the Taco Bell promotion.



"Cain made $2.73 million in 2015, which is good because he won’t be able to enjoy his free Taco Bell following the game on Wednesday morning," said Ted Berg, of USA Today.

"Unfortunately for all of us, the A.M. Crunchwrap is simply not as delicious as the regular Crunchy Tacos from Taco Bell once distributed under the terms of a similar promotion. And Lorenzo Cain's name does not make for as easy Taco Bell puns as previous World Series base-stealing Taco Bell heroes like Jacoby Ellsbury, better known to some as Tacoby Bellsbury," Berg added.

The 14-inning game turned out to be the longest first game of the World Series in Major League history. The game tied the 14-inning Game 3 in 2005 when the Chicago White Sox beat the Houston Astros 7-5 in Houston's Minute Maid Park, according to Major League Baseball. But Tuesday's time length of five hours and nine minutes was short of the five hours and 41 minutes the White Sox and Astros played.

The Boston Red Sox beat the Brooklyn Dodgers 2-1 in 14 innings in Game 2 of the 1916 World Series, but Major League baseball did not mention how long it took that game to play.
