Ladies and gentlemen, this kid is 19 years old, and doesn't turn 20 until Oct. 25. He is making some serious strides so far and his first homer of the night added to his impressive stat line.
In the top of the fourth inning, Soto poked this ball over the short left field wall at Yankee Stadium, giving the Nats a 4-3 lead over the Yanks.
He wasn't done there, though. Soto just crushed his second dinger of the night, putting the Nats up 5-4.
The Nationals have one of the best lineups in baseball and certainly one of the best starting rotations. They started off a little slow due to some injuries, but they have gotten those players back and have added this stud youngster as well.
Could this be the year the Nationals finally get over the hump and reach the Fall Classic? They're looking strong, no doubt.
