Late Night LaMonte’s parents go crazy on walk-off hit originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

LaMonte Wade Jr. didn’t hit a homer over his mom’s head, but his walk-off hit in the Giants’ 5-4 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Thursday night still produced a memorable moments for his parents.

LaMonte Sr. and Emily Wade were in attendance at Oracle Park and had a great view of their son’s clutch hit in the ninth inning.

KRON4News’ Jason Dumas captured this video of Emily and LaMonte Sr. celebrating.

Wade Jr. certainly is earning the Late Night LaMonte nickname. Per Stats, he now has six game-tying or go-ahead hits in the ninth inning this season.

With three games remaining in the regular season, Wade Jr. is hitting .571 in the ninth inning or later, per MLB.com’s Sarah Langs.

Wade Jr.’s latest heroics gave the Giants their 105th win of the season and allowed them to preserve a two-game lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers in the NL West with three games to go.

But more than the wins, Wade Jr. has given his parents plenty of reasons to celebrate this season.
