Washington Nationals star Juan Soto is very good at hitting a baseball very far. On Monday night he hit a home run 463, which at the time was a career high for the 21-year-old left fielder. I said "at the time" because on Wednesday night he stepped up to the plate at New York's Citi Field and hit one 466 feet, which is obviously a new career high.
Pete Alonso and Dominic Smith had back-to-back RBI doubles in a four-run first inning and hit consecutive homers in a five-run sixth, leading the New York Mets to an 11-6 win over the Washington Nationals on Wednesday night. The fourth, fifth and sixth batters in the Mets' lineup, Michael Conforto, Alonso and Smith, went 7-for-11 with eight RBIs, eight runs scored, three walks and a hit batsman in 15 plate appearances. ''Those guys four through six in the lineup, they did great,'' Mets manager Luis Rojas said.
