LaRosa’s pizza is getting a lot of attention and giving out a lot of free pizzas. You all know about the pizza chain’s deal to give ticket holders a free small pizza whenever the Reds strike out 11 batters in a game. Well, the Reds have done this 7 times already this year (all at GABP) after doing it just 22 times over a full season last year. Through the first 22 games last season, the Reds had only struck out 11 batters in a game once, and that was on the road.

The following shows the Reds record so far this year compared to the first 22 games and full season stats from last year.
