Darnell McDonald played for the Rochester Red Wings in 2001, 2002, and then again in 2007. In his time with the club he propelled the Red Wings to two different 7-6 wins, much like his April 20, 2010 heroics.
On May 29, 2002 McDonald hit a 2-run single in the bottom of the eighth to cap off a Red Wing four-run rally over the Buffalo Bisons.
On August 11, 2007 he singled in Denard Span with two outs in the bottom of the eighth. The hit earned him the game-winning RBI over the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees.
