Randy Arozarena broke one MLB record during Game 4 of the World Series on Saturday night and tied another. 

The Tampa Bay Rays outfielder hit his ninth homer at the bottom of the fourth, setting the record for most home runs ever hit in a single postseason. 

A sixth-inning single also gave him 26 hits during the playoffs, tying the postseason mark set by Pablo Sandoval in 2014. 

It's been a historic season for the rookie, who entered Saturday hitting .354/.425/.800 in 17 games this postseason. He surpassed Derek Jeter's record fr rookie hits on Friday during Game 3 with his ninth-inning home run, which also earned him his 52nd total base of the playoffs, breaking David Freese's record for the most in a single postseason.
