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 1-for-4 with a walk, a solo home run and a second run scored in Friday's 10-5 loss to the Braves.
That's now four homers in the last four games for the teenager and 20 on the season, and Soto has pushed his slash line back up to .303/.417/.534. He's locked in a dogfight with Atlanta's Ronald Acuna -- who himself had a big game Friday, falling a homer short of a cycle -- for NL Rookie of the Year, and this weekend's head-to-head clash could go a long way towards determining the winner.
Soto went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 5-1 win over the Phillies.
The 19-year-old now has three homers in the last two games and 19 on the season, putting him third on MLB's all-time list for home runs by a teenager behind Red Sox folk hero Tony Conigliaro (24) and Soto's own teammate Bryce Harper (22). Weather permitting, the Nats have 16 games left on their schedule, and given Soto's current form it's not out of the question that he catches one or both of them.
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.
