Kiké sets postseason records as historic run continues originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

Kiké Hernandez’s 2021 MLB postseason performance is one of a kind.

The Boston Red Sox‘ utility man has been unstoppable through the American League Division Series and Game 1 of the ALCS. After racking up 10 hits between the Wild Card game and ALDS, Hernandez started out 3-for-3 vs. the Houston Astros on Friday night.

Hernandez led off the game with a single, then belted a homer and legged out a double in his next two at-bats. In doing so, he became the first player in MLB history to record 12 hits in a four-game span in a single postseason, per Red Sox Notes on Twitter.

Hernandez’s 13 hits in the postseason are the most ever by a Red Sox player through the first six games of a playoff run, according to The Boston Globe’s Alex Speier. David Ortiz previously held the record with 12 in the first six games of the 2004 postseason.

Oh, and let’s not forget about that incredibly clutch diving catch in the second inning of Game 1.

There’s red-hot, and then there’s what Hernandez is right about now.
