Juan Soto secured the National League batting title in the Washington Nationals\' 15-5 win over the New York Mets on Sunday.

Soto, 21, walked and singled before being lifted for a pinch hitter in the third inning, locking in his average at .351 for the pandemic-shortened 60-game season.

Soto surpassed Brooklyn\'s Pete Reiser as the youngest ever to win a NL batting crown. Reiser was 22 when he ended the 1941 season hitting a league-leading .343.
