Watch Gregory Soto collect his first career hit... and then his second career hit

New, comments

Nothing makes sense anymore.

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 12 innings).

He also joined some exclusive company for good measure.
