First no-hitter of 2015 means free pizza

No hits, no walks, 11 strikeouts, three hit batsmen and 20,000 free pizzas.

Giants rookie Chris Heston threw the first no-hitter of the season on Tuesday night in a 5-0 victory over the Mets at Citi Field, and that means it's #DomiNoNo time again around here. Starting at 3 p.m. ET on Wednesday, the first 20,000 baseball fans who visit and log in at will receive a code for a free, two-topping medium Handmade Pan Pizza.

The DomiNoNo offer is available until 20,000 codes are given away, or for five days starting at 3 p.m. ET on the business day following the no-hitter. History shows that they go fast. This is the third year in a row that Domino's is celebrating one of the most exciting moments in America's favorite pastime by giving away one of the country's favorite foods.

"What better way to celebrate one of the greatest achievements in sports -- the no-hitter -- than with free pizza?" Domino's spokesperson Tim McIntyre said. "Domino's is excited to be partnering with to continue giving baseball fans a delicious way to get in on the excitement."

All registered users are eligible to receive a free pizza, as Domino's gives away 20,000 for each of the first two no-hitters of the 2015 regular season. After you get a code, the free pizzas are for carryout only and must be placed on

Last year, Dodgers pitchers Josh Beckett and Clayton Kershaw triggered the pizza giveaway, and a third #Dominono was activated by the combined Phillies no-hitter. In 2013, Homer Bailey and Tim Lincecum accounted for the first two #Dominono handouts.

There have now been 240 no-hitters since 1901, an average of more than two per season.

When a no-hitter is in progress through the sixth inning of any game this regular season, you will be encouraged to follow @MLB on Twitter and use the #DomiNoNo hashtag for up-to-the-moment game alerts or watch live lookins on or the award-winning At Bat app.
