Freak delivery: Get free pizza, thanks to Lincecum no-no
First 10,000 MLB.TV subscribers to MLB.com/Dominos on Monday can get free pie

Tim Lincecum was on the hill on the road in both games involving a free Domino's pizza for fans across America this season, but this time he was the one responsible for your food.
The Giants' right-hander no-hit the Padres on Saturday night at Petco Park, and that means the first 10,000 MLB.TV subscribers who visit MLB.com/Dominos between now and 2:59 a.m. ET on Sunday can score a free Domino's two-topping medium handmade pan pizza.
Lincecum was the losing pitcher on July 2 when Homer Bailey no-hit the Giants in Cincinnati. Domino's and Major League Baseball Advanced Media had announced the "DomiNoNo" offer to all subscribers of MLB.TV, the Internet's longest running and most prolific live video subscription service, for the first two no-hitters of this season. So that means Lincecum was involved in both.
It is for carryout only, and the code must be claimed and redeemed within five days, starting at 3 p.m. ET the first business day following the no-hitter.
"The no-hitter is one of sports' greatest achievements," said Domino's spokesperson Chris Brandon. "Domino's is thrilled to reward baseball fans with free pizza the day after each of the first two no-hitters of the 2013 season."
Lincecum's no-hitter, which required 148 pitches, was the 15th in Giants history and the seventh since the franchise moved to San Francisco in 1958. He had plenty of help from his defense, including Hunter Pence's diving catch to end the eighth.
"I just said thank you for the plays and the output that we had," Lincecum said of teammates.
Feel free to add your own thanks if you're among the masses who will be capitalizing on this no-hitter, as thousands did following Bailey's gem earlier this month. The promotion is part of a larger media package between Domino's and MLBAM that will see the pizza company's ads featured on several MLBAM digital media properties.
