Bichette Sets Doubles Record As Yankees Keep Rolling

Jonathan Grant | August 9th, 2019

Bo Bichette is having one heck of a rookie season. In the days of old, rookies were expected to struggle for a time in the big leagues, but that trend is starting to be left behind in the dustbin of history. Speaking of history, Bichette, the son of former Rockies player Dante, made it on Thursday in less than 50 career at-bats by hitting a double in the sixth inning.

In his 11th game, Bichette now holds the mark for most games with a double in a row at nine, something no one has managed to do since 1900 when records were kept more methodically. Bichette also homered for his Toronto Blue Jays, who are apparently all made up of former Big Leaguer’s sons’ now, in their 12-6 loss to the New York Yankees at home. He’s had a hit in all 11 of his games so far as well, surpassing the lead for most hits to begin a career in franchise history, too. The Yankees got the win in large part due to Gio Urshela, who hit two homers for the second day in a row to give them their ninth consecutive win, their longest winning streak of the season.
