In non-Bryce Harper baseball news, Nats outfielder Juan Soto hit a home run Friday.

Playing in the Major League Baseball All-Star tour in Japan, Soto belted a two-run homer to the opposite field to give the MLB a 6-4 lead in the sixth. 

In Thursday's game, Soto doubled off the roof of the Tokyo Dome and broke out a little dance at second base.


Soto looks to be having a bit of fun in Japan after his debut season in Washington saw him hit 22 home runs and tally 70 RBIs. However, the major leaguers wasted Soto's homer Friday, allowing three runs in the bottom of the ninth falling to Samurai Japan, 7-6.
