If you thought Gregory Soto would be the first Detroit Tigers pitcher to collect a hit this season, stop lying.
Weird preseason predictions aside, Soto did just that on Friday against the New York Mets, dropping a single into left field for the first hit of his MLB career.
That’s not all, though!
If that wasn’t enough in a weird-as-all-getout game — the Tigers are up 4-1 against Noah Syndergaard right now — Soto collected a second knock in the top of the fourth.
This one wasn’t cheap, either; it came off Soto’s bat at 105.5 miles per hour, the fourth-hardest hit ball of the game (through 3 1⁄2 innings).
