On Tuesday night, the Houston Astros hosted Game 6 of the World Series against the Washington Nationals.

After dropping the first two games of the series at home, the Astros fought back to win the next three in the nation's capitol to take a 3-2 lead in the series.

Washington took an early 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning, but the Astros responded with two runs in the bottom of the first. The second run came on a home run from star third baseman Alex Bregman - who carried his bat to first base.

Not to be outdone, young Nationals star Juan Soto hit an absolute moon-shot off of Justin Verlander in the top of the fifth inning. The home run gave the Nationals a 3-2 lead in the game.

He decided to troll Bregman by brining his bat to first base as well.

Check it out.

Soto became the youngest player in MLB history to hit three home runs in a World Series. He just turned 21 years old earlier this series.

The star outfielder is known for his antics at the plate, but decided to carry it out to first base to troll the Astros.

Can the Nationals hold on to even the series? Stay tuned.
