Free pizza has quickly become an expectation for Reds fans. Cincinnati has only played 15 home games this season, but seven of them have resulted in Reds pitchers striking out at least 11 hitters. What happens when Reds pitchers fan 11 hitters or more in a home game? Well, LaRosa's Pizzeria gives away free pizza to anyone who can present a ticket stub from the game. And the local restaurant chain doesn't just hand out slices, either. No, they give fans eight-inch pizzas with any four toppings worth nearly $7.
