NEW YORK — Teenage rookie Juan Soto homered twice and drove in four runs, becoming the youngest player in 29 years to go deep in a regular-season game at Yankee Stadium, and the Washington Nationals beat New York 5-4 on Wednesday night.

After getting a game off Tuesday, his first in three-plus weeks as a major leaguer, a refreshed Soto showed exactly why he was rated one of baseball's best prospects.

The 19-year-old outfielder lofted a three-run homer into the left-field corner off Sonny Gray in the fourth inning to give Washington, shut out in its previous two games, a 4-3 lead. Soto then launched a titanic shot to right-center in the seventh against Chasen Shreve (2-1), putting the Nationals back in front 5-4.

Projected at 436 feet, the drive soared to the back of a standing-room terrace above and beyond the Yankees' bullpen in right-center. It also ended a 23-inning shutout streak for New York relievers and made Soto (19 years, 231 days old) the youngest player in Nationals history to have a multihomer game.

Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr. was 19 years, 190 days old when he homered — also twice — for Seattle at old Yankee Stadium on May 30, 1989. Andruw Jones was 19 as well when he hit two home runs for Atlanta in Game 1 of the 1996 World Series at Yankee Stadium.

  BREAKING: Bryce Harper Pulls Himself Out of Game After Second HBP of Day Bryce Harper's big appearance at Yankee Stadium is not turning out how he probably expected.

And this time, he’s leaving the game. Tough game for Bryce.

BOX SCORE: NATIONALS 5, YANKEES 4

New York got a long home run from its own impressive rookie, 21-year-old Gleyber Torres, to tie it at 4 in the fifth. Greg Bird also hit a solo homer and Giancarlo Stanton had three hits for the Yankees, including a two-out RBI single that glanced off the glove of third baseman Anthony Rendon.

New York lost for only the fifth time in its last 23 home games.

Nationals rookie Erick Fedde allowed four runs and six hits in five innings. Pitching in place of injured ace Stephen Strasburg, the right-hander was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse before the game to make his fifth major league start and second this season.

TRAVEL PLANS

Washington manager Dave Martinez had no qualms about starting an inexperienced Fedde under the Yankee Stadium spotlight. "Fedde's a gamer. I don't know if you recall last time we called him up, his flight got canceled so he had to drive. And he pitched (well). So we got him here early, and hopefully he got enough rest," Martinez said. To open a roster spot for Fedde, the Nationals optioned reliever Trevor Gott to Triple-A Syracuse. Gott was 0-2 with a 4.96 ERA in 18 appearances.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Nationals: As expected, Bryce Harper was back in the lineup after leaving Tuesday night's loss in the eighth inning when he was hit by a pitch for the second time in the game. The slugger was plunked on the right elbow and left foot but said afterward he was fine and there were "no ill feelings at all." Washington pitchers made no apparent attempt to retaliate Wednesday. Harper went 0 for 4 with two strikeouts. ... Daniel Murphy (right knee surgery) was the DH again after going hitless Tuesday in his season debut. "He's ready to play, so we're going to play him. Nice to have that bat in the lineup," Martinez said. Murphy went 0 for 3 with a walk. ... Strasburg (right shoulder inflammation) is working out back home, Martinez said. ... RHP Jeremy Hellickson (strained right hamstring) is still building strength in his hamstring before he starts throwing much off a mound, according to Martinez.

Icon to eyesore: Storied Akron Rubber Bowl awaits demolition .
Billy Graham saved souls there. Karl Wallenda once walked on a tightrope above the gridiron. The Rolling Stones performed there in 1972, getting fans so worked up that a couple dozen got arrested. And there was football. Lots of football. In the end, the Akron Rubber Bowl's splendid past couldn't save it from the wrecking ball. Allowed in recent decades to crumble into a public health hazard, the landmark 78-year-old stadium will start to come down next week.
