Soto connected for the game-tying home run in the eighth inning off Clayton Kershaw, a 449-foot rocket that came off the bat at 110 MPH. It was the second homer of the series for Soto, who went yard 34 times during the regular season and slashed .282/.401/.548 with 12 stolen bases in 13 attempts. Soto and the Nationals will face St. Louis in the National League Championship Series.
Soto is not in Thursday's lineup against the Phillies.
He is 3-for-35 (.086) with zero home runs, 13 strikeouts and 14 walks over his last 12 games. Gerardo Parra will start in left field and hit eighth.
Soto went 1-for-7 with a walk between both ends of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Phillies.
The Nationals punched their ticket to the postseason with a win in the front end of the twin bill, but Soto still picked up a start in the second game as Washington kept most of its regulars in the lineup. Soto has gone cold to close out the regular season with a .103 average and one extra-base hit over his past 10 starts, but he's at least maintained a disciplined approach with a 14:11 BB:K over that span.

Soto got his 34th long ball of the season and his second in four games with this sixth-inning two-run shot off Kohl Stewart. The 20-year-old has established himself as a full-on superstar in 2019, slashing .296/.405/.579 in 136 games.
Though Soto will start in left field and bat cleanup Wednesday in the series finale with the Mets, he'll be playing through a sore right elbow after being hit by a pitch in Tuesday's 11-10 win, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
The incident occurred in the sixth inning, but Soto was able to stay in the game and then homered in his next at-bat. The Nationals are sending him in for an X-ray prior to Wednesday's contest for precautionary reasons, but his inclusion in the lineup suggests the elbow won't be much of an issue moving forward. He'll simply don some extra padding on his elbow while he manages the soreness.
Soto went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double, three RBI and three runs scored Tuesday against the Mets.

Soto went 4-for-4 with a walk, two doubles and four runs scored in Monday's 13-0 rout of the Pirates.
The Nats' offense has been basically unstoppable lately, and Soto's been right at the heart of that eruption, slashing .375/.468/.975 over his last 10 games with seven homers, three steals, 12 RBI and 15 runs. That surge has made him one of only three players in MLB history to reach 50 home runs before their 21st birthday, joining Hall of Famer Mel Ott (61) and Tony Conigliaro (56) in that very exclusive group.

Soto went 1-for-7 with a two-run home run, a walk and a stolen base Saturday in the Nationals' 15-14 loss to the Brewers in 14 innings.
Soto has gone deep five times in the last seven games, but it's his ongoing involvement as a baserunner that's perhaps been the more surprising development. He's gone 3-for-3 on stolen-base attempts over that same seven-game stretch and now has 12 steals in 13 tries on the season. Soto's impact in that category has provided an unexpected boost to his already robust fantasy value.
Soto went 1-for-3 with a solo home run Tuesday against the Reds.
After exiting Sunday's game with an ankle strain, Soto returned to the lineup Tuesday and showed no ill effects.

So long as the injury doesn't hamper him down the stretch, Soto will turn in a stellar sophomore campaign as he's currently hitting .288/.402/.546 across 473 plate appearances.
Soto (ankle) is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Reds.
Soto returns to the lineup after missing just one game with a right ankle sprain. The 20-year-old worked out on the field Monday and evidently felt comfortable enough to return to left field and his customary spot in the four hole.
Soto, who is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Reds, said his sprained right ankle feels much better and indicated that he planned to test the injury with an on-field workout, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.
Soto appears to have avoided a serious setback after the mild sprain prompted his early departure in Sunday's 7-4 win over the Mets.

Soto (ankle) is not in the lineup Monday against the Reds.
Soto will miss at least one game as he nurses a mild ankle strain he picked up while running the bases in Sunday's 7-4 win over the Mets. Gerardo Parra is starting in left field and hitting sixth in place of Soto, who should be considered day-to-day.
