Forget the total solar eclipse—New York Yankees slugger Juan Soto’s first homer in the Bronx proved to be the main event on Monday evening.

Soto stepped up to the plate against lefty Jesús Luzardo in Monday’s delayed game against the Miami Marlins and hit a three-run bomb into right field, giving New York a comfortable 6-0 lead in the fourth inning.

It was Soto’s second homer of the season and the Yankees’ second of the inning, as shortstop Anthony Volpe also slammed a three-run homer earlier in the frame.

Fans in the Bronx went wild over Soto’s first Yankee Stadium home run in pinstripes, as captured in a breathtaking panoramic reel taken by one of members of the Yankees’ camera crew.

The Yankees would go on to crush the Marlins in a 7—0 romp and improve to 9—2, tied for the best 11-game start in team history.

In his first year in New York, Soto is slashing .366/.471/.561 with 10 RBIs. The three-time All-Star hit his first Yankees homer in a 5—3 win against the Houston Astros on March 30. Soto is playing in the final year of his deal this season and could potentially command a contract starting in the $500 million range in free agency, according to The Athletic.
