NEW YORK (AP) — Young star Juan Soto has been pulled from the Washington Nationals game against the New York Mets after turning his right ankle running the bases in the seventh inning.

Soto walked to load the bases and went first-to-third on Asdrubal Cabrera's two-out, two-run double Sunday. Third base coach Bob Henley threw up a late stop sign, and Soto turned his ankle attempting to stop after rounding third. The Mets tagged him out to end the inning, and Soto spiked his helmet, hobbled into the outfield and then was visited by a trainer.

Soto remained in shallow left field for a few minutes, attempted to warm up defensively for the next inning but then returned to the dugout. He was replaced by Victor Robles.

The 20-year-old Soto was 0 for 2 with two walks. He has reached base in 17 straight games and hit two home runs Saturday. He is hitting .289 with 24 home runs and 77 RBIs and ranks among the NL leaders in both walks and on-base percentage.
