WASHINGTON (AP) Juan Soto, the youngest player in the majors at 19, wasn't sure his towering drive would clear the fence in left-center field. He was the only one.

Soto hit a three-run homer in his first career start as the Washington Nationals defeated the San Diego Padres 10-2 on Monday.

"I didn't think it was going to go out of the park," said Soto, who also singled in four at-bats. "I just run hard, the same what I do in the minor leagues. Then I heard the noise and I know it's gone."
