Wade exits Giants-Phillies game after suffering left leg injury originally appeared on NBC Sports Bay Area

First baseman LaMonte Wade Jr. left the Giants’ game against the Philadelphia Phillies on Monday at Oracle Park after suffering an apparent left leg injury.

Wade doubled off the right field wall, but while sliding toward second base, he hurt himself and immediately grabbed the back of his left leg, in the hamstring area.

Wade was able to walk off the field cautiously with the help of an athletic trainer.

Wade sprained his hamstring in the ninth inning of the Giants’ thrilling victory over the New York Mets on Friday and did not start Saturday’s game, although he did come in as a pinch-hitter in the ninth inning. He did not play Sunday in the series finale.

Wade has been one of the Giants’ best hitters this season and they can’t afford to lose him for an extended period of time.

The 30-year-old finished the game 1 for 3 and is hitting .333/.470/.426 with six doubles, two home runs and 17 RBIs this season.
