Juan Soto Makes His Second MLB Debut Tonight

The Nationals and Yankees will share a strange and complicated experience Monday evening when, at 5:05 p.m., they resume the game suspended due to rain with the score tied in the sixth inning on May 15.

But Howie Kendrick, now out for the season with an Achilles’ injury, is due up third that inning. Andrew Stevenson, since optioned to Class AAA Syracuse, is also in the lineup. Adam Eaton and Daniel Murphy, both available now, were not on the active roster that day. Juan Soto had not yet made his major league debut. What are the Nationals to do?

Nats ride Soto’s historic 2-HR game to split in NY

NEW YORK—The first game Juan Soto played in this season came at State Mutual Stadium, the home of the Braves’ Class A Rome affiliate, which seats a little more than 5,000 people. Soto offered a glimpse of his enormous potential in that game, when he homered for Hagerstown, but even then it would have been difficult to imagine how different his stage would be just two months later. And how well he would handle it.

On Wednesday night, Soto played for the first time in his career at Yankee Stadium in front of 45,030 fans. And he responded by becoming the fifth-youngest player in Major League history to record a multihomer game, swatting a three-run homer in the fourth that squeaked over the left-field wall and a towering 436-foot solo homer to center field in the seventh to power the Nats to a 5-4 victory.
