Nationals outfielder Juan Soto hit his first major league homer on Monday evening, drilling a three-run jack on the first pitch he saw from Padres starter Robbie Erlin in the second inning. It went 422 feet to the opposite field.

Soto, 19, made his major league debut on Sunday, striking out in a pinch-hit appearance in the eighth inning. The prospect made waves already this season, cranking out 14 home runs and driving in 52 runs across 182 plate appearances with Single-A Hagerstown, High-A Potomac, and Double-A Harrisburg. Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good.
