Soto went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run, three RBI and two runs scored in the Nationals' 12-6 win over the Twins on Thursday.
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 produced early and often for the Nationals, beginning the scoring with an RBI double in the first inning. He followed that up with a two-run homer in the eighth inning, his 32nd of the season and third in his past four contests. The 20-year-old has now also recorded seven multi-hit efforts in his last 10 starts. That's only added to his impressive .299/.406/.583 line across 128 games this season.
Soto went 3-for-4 with a home run, two doubles, two runs and three RBI in Sunday's 9-3 win over the Marlins.
Soto has registered multi-hit performances in four consecutive contests and in eight of his last 13 starts, racking up five home runs, 21 runs and 14 RBI over that stretch. He'll look to keep that torrid pace going Monday versus Noah Syndergaard and the Mets, with Soto occupying the cleanup spot in the series opener.
Soto went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double, two runs scored and two RBI in Saturday's win over the Marlins.
Soto went back-to-back with Anthony Rendon in the first inning and came through again in the third with an RBI double. The 20-year-old is slashing .294/.403/.566 with 30 home runs, 92 RBI and 12 stolen bases this year.
