BOSTON (WHDH) - Kiké Hernández, undeniably one of the hottest hitters in the playoffs, continued his historic run Saturday night by smashing another home run in Game 2 of the ALCS.

The Red Sox center fielder took yet another celebratory ride in the laundry cart after giving the team a 9-0 lead over the Houston Astros in Minute Maid Park.

His teammates say they are happy to see the offense click in at the right time.

“You have guys hitting at the top of the order and the guys hitting at the bottom of the order. It’s a deadly lineup,” said JD Martinez. “The way he’s playing, I mean it’s just a potent lineup, 1 through 8, 1 through 9.”

His 5 homers are also tied for most in team history with Ortiz in 2004 and 2013 and Todd Walker in 2003.

Fans say they love getting to watch the playoff heroics every time he steps on the field.

“I can’t remember someone as great as him in the playoffs since Ortiz,” one man said.

Son Nation is now looking to the future and hoping Hernández has at least a few more big swings left in him as the ALCS shifts back to Boston.
