Colorado Rockies shortstop Trevor Story smacked yet another home run during Monday’s 5-1 win over the Cincinnati Reds, giving him eight homers through the first 13 games of his career, the most in that span since 1900, per Elias Sports Bureau (via ESPN Stats & Info).

After going deep seven times through the first six games of the season (and his career), the 23-year-old rookie went through a bit of a drought, failing to go yard in six consecutive games, though he did still have six hits—including two triples and a double—during that stretch.

Story picked an excellent time to end his mini-drought, breaking a 1-1 lead in the eighth inning of Monday’s game with a solo home run off Reds relief pitcher Ross Ohlendorf.

The no-doubt blast to right-center field travelled an estimated 423 feet, with Story once again showing off the kind of raw power that is extremely rare for a middle infielder.

Despite striking out 23 times in the first 55 at-bats of his career, he owns a .309 batting average, .339 on-base percentage and .855 slugging percentage, with 14 RBI, 13 runs and a stolen base to complement the eight homers.

Since 1900, only two other players recorded seven homers in their first 13 career games, with Carlos Delgado (1993-94) and Dino Restelli (1949) doing the honors.

Delgado went on to enjoy a remarkable career that included 473 home runs, whereas Restelli ultimately retired with just 13 homers in 270 at-bats.
