Nationals leftfielder Juan Soto hit his seventh home run of the season on Tuesday night against the Mets. The blast ended up on the concourse of the upper deck in rightfield.
The home run also came immediately after Mets broadcaster Keith Hernandez said Soto, who hit 22 home runs as a 19-year-old rookie, isn’t a home run hitter. Nats Twitter wasted no time dunking on Hernandez and the Mets.
Juan Soto is 20 years old.
Juan Soto has played 154 @MLB games.

Come on Keith, you can’t label a guy as “not a home run hitter” who hit 22 homers in his first season as a teenager. Soto didn’t just shut him up, he hit a no doubter and rubbed his face in it.
