Technically, Juan Soto's home run against the Yankees happened in a game before his MLB debut.
Washington Nationals rookie Juan Soto crushed a 433-foot moonshot home run in Monday afternoon's game against the New York Yankees, which is a continuation of a game from May 15th that was rained out in the sixth inning.
Soto made his MLB debut on May 20th and hit five home runs. His home run in the top of the seventh inning on Monday was the sixth but technically happened in a game that took place before his MLB debut. The two-run blast put the Nationals up 5–3.
In his first five career plate appearances against the Yankees, Soto has three home runs.
