The 19-year-old doesn't seem to be taking his foot off the pedal and he pulled something off Tuesday night in Game 2 of a doubleheader that had the Major League Baseball community buzzing.
Soto blasted his 17th long ball off the Phillies' Jake Arrieta breaking a tie with Ken Griffey Jr. for fourth place on the list of most home runs by a teenager.

The Nats also used Soto's 2-for-4 afternoon along with this ridiculious defensive play to take Game 1, 3-1.
The rookie has hit safely in 13 of his last 16 games and totaled 59 RBIs on the year, tying teammate Bryce Harper's previous feat for the eighth-most RBIs by a teenager in MLB history.
