Juan Soto puts on a show
Forget how old is, he doesn’t care, and he sure doesn’t act his age. All we know is that Juan Soto is one of the best hitters in all of baseball and proved that in Game 1 of the World Series on Tuesday night.
Not only did he go 3-for-4 at the plate and drive in three of the Nationals four runs, but he came through exactly when the team needed him.
On the telecast, they talked about how Soto adjusted after striking out against Cole in the first inning. He basically got the same pitch he struck out on in his first at-bat but didn’t miss it in his second at-bat.
That swing on that pitch … it’s hard to describe just how incredible that is, and the fact that he put it up on the train tracks, and it tied the game!
But Soto wasn’t done for the night, he came up in the biggest spot in the game for the Nationals and delivered a huge two-out two-RBI double that at the time opened things up for Washington.
Those runs ended up being the difference as the Nationals held on for a 5-4 win.
It was wonderful to see Juan Soto put on a show in Game 1 of the World Series, and if the baseball world wasn’t aware before, they now know that Soto is one of the best players in this game.
