Soto went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer and a second run scored in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Phillies.

With Anthony Rendon at first base and the Nats trailing 3-2 with two outs in the top of the ninth inning, Soto drove the first pitch he saw from Philly closer Hector Neris for his 16th home run of the year. The 20-year-old slugger is now slashing .302/.406/.542 over 81 games, numbers slightly better than last year's historic rookie campaign.
