Soto went 2-for-4 with a home run, four RBI and two runs scored Saturday against the Rockies.
Soto came through with a few big hits, highlighted by a two-run double in the first inning, followed by a solo homer in the fifth inning. The long ball brought his season total to 22. It's been an impressive rookie campaign for the 19-year-old Soto -- he began the season in Low-A Hagerstown -- who's hitting .294/.407/.521 across 490 plate appearances at the major-league level.
Soto went 3-for-4 with two home runs, a double, four RBI and a walk in Game 2 of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Phillies.
Soto powered the Nationals offense with an RBI double during the first inning, a two-run homer in the second and a solo home run in the 10th to provide a 7-6 lead. The 19-year-old went 5-for-8 between the two games, and has a .306/.421/.529 slash line with 18 home runs during his rookie campaign -- including three multi-homer games, a new MLB record for a teenager.
Soto is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Cubs.
Soto will head to the bench for the second half of Saturday's twin bill after going 1-for-5 with a pair of RBI in Game 1. Bryce Harper and Victor Robles will cover the corner-outfield spots in this one.
Soto went 1-for-4 with two RBI, a walk and two runs scored in Sunday's 15-0 victory over New York.
Soto plated the first run of the game in the sixth inning on a groundout to first base, and he drove in another in the eighth inning on a walk with the bases loaded. The 19-year-old rookie has continued to impress at the plate this season, as he's notched a base knock in seven of his previous 10 ballgames. He sports a .290 average with 15 homers and 47 RBI through 86 games in 2018.
Soto concluded July with his eighth multi-hit performance of the month, which raised his season line to .313/.418/.567 through 61 career games. The 19-year-old has shown no signs of slowing down since being promoted to the big leagues and should remain a mainstay in the heart of the lineup through the second half. He'll start in left field and bat fifth in Wednesday's series finale, per Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post.
