The San Francisco Giants are fighting to make a wild card spot this season. It’s going to be a close battle in the National League and the Giants are going to continue to look for LaMonte Wade Jr. to set the tone at the top of the lineup.


Wade had his struggles at the plate this past week and a half, but the 29-year-old has had some success as of late.


He recently hit consecutive home runs this past Saturday and Monday.


On August 19, Wade became the sixth Giant to hit a first-pitch leadoff home run since 2000. He also went 2-for-4 that game as well. 


Prior to that game, he was hitless for six consecutive games. And during the month of August, he’s been hitting right above that .230 average.

A few months ago, Wade was doing damage at the plate. In May, he hit .292 and had 28 hits, which is the most hits he’s had in a month this season.


This time of the season is always an exciting time because you have teams that are fighting to make the playoffs. And this is when teams want their players to step up and deliver when their number is called.


Wade is in his third year with the Giants and this season he will reach a career-high in games played with them.


He is a player who is valued in San Francisco and the team knows how much of an impact he can be on the field.



Through 108 games this season, Wade is hitting .259 with 13 home runs and 35 RBI.


The Giants and Arizona Diamondbacks are neck and neck and are both fighting for that second place spot in the NL West and they are fighting for that wild card spot too.


Wade has only appeared in the postseason one time in his career, and that was with the Giants during the 2021 season. He only recorded one hit in 10 plate appearances.


He can go on to have a productive career with the Giants and be an integral part to the team’s future.


There’s no question that Wade wants to get back to the postseason and produce for his team on that stage.


But to get to the postseason, he will have to continue to be consistent at the plate and display that power from the left hand side and the Giants will need to turn things around sooner rather than later, because at this point, every game is critical.


With how the Dodgers are playing right now, it looks like they have the division secured, but there still is a lot of season left and anything can happen.


We will get a chance to see how Wade performs these next few months and if he can help his team get back to postseason play.
