No player has been hotter this postseason than Tampa Bay Rays rookie Randy Arozarena.

The 25-year-old was at it again on Tuesday night in Game 6 of the World Series against the Dodgers, when he blasted a first inning home run to give Tampa an early 1-0 lead.

The dinger was a historic one, too.

It was Arozarena’s 10th home run of the postseason and third of the World Series. He became just the second rookie to hit three home runs in a World Series, joining Charlie Keller of the New York Yankees, who accomplished the feat in 1939.

The 10 postseason home runs came in 25 career playoff games, which is the third fewest games to 10 postseason home runs of all time, per ESPN Stats and Info.

Arozarena has been the breakout star of the MLB postseason and making all sorts of history. In Sunday’s Game 5, Arozarena set the record for the most hits in a single postseason with 27, passing Pablo Sandoval’s record in 2014.
