The Washington Nationals’ teenager phenom Juan Soto continues to amaze. A night after becoming the first teenager since Ken Griffey Jr. to hit a home run and draw an intentional walk in the same game, Soto added another milestone as he became the first teenager in Major League Baseball history to hit a home run in three consecutive games.

Soto hit his 13th home run of his rookie campaign off Pablo Lopez in the second inning, giving him the remarkable feat. He also tied Mickey Mantle for sixth-most home runs hit by a teenager in MLB history.

He is surely making his mark, and showing the Nationals and its fans what the future beholds with him. Everything he does at this point seems amazing. Soto even drew the awe from his teammate Trea Turner as he launched the home run.

Soto was a double shy of hitting for the cycle as he went 3-for-5, including a two-run triple in the Nationals’ 9-1 win over the Marlins.

Soto has been on tear after climbing up three classes in the Nationals’ farm system, the 19-year old has thrived at the major league level. He is hitting .315/.423/.581 with 36 RBIs to go along with his 13 homers. All signs point to the Nationals finding a gem with youngster being supplanted as a fixture for years to come.
