Bo Bichette is on fire.

The 21-year-old's first nine games in the big leagues have been sprinkled with accolades, but his 10th extra-base hit Tuesday night for the Blue Jays cemented a place in MLB history.

Bichette is the first player ever to have 10 extra-base hits in his first nine career games. On top of that, he extended his career-opening hitting streak to nine games, which is a Blue Jays record.

Toronto manager Charlie Montoyo couldn't help but laud Bichette, even though the Jays lost to the Rays, 7-6.

“You know, when I hear stuff like [Tuesday’s MLB record], you start thinking about [Roberto] Clemente, Babe Ruth, those guys that play in the big leagues, and that’s amazing. I’m glad I was here to watch that. It’s a pretty good record," Montoyo said, via MLB.com.

“There’s a lot of good players that have played this game already … so that’s amazing.”

Bichette is batting .415 with three homers and four RBIs.

He is the son of former big leaguer Dante Bichette, who was an outfielder most notably as part of the Rockies' "Blake Street Bombers" but also with the Angels, Brewers, Reds and Red Sox.
