Rookie wins both decisions

By Rochester Red Wings | April 22, 2013 1:23 PM ET


Rochester Red Wings pitcher Logan Darnell has been named the Batavia Downs Racetrack and Gaming Player of the Week for the period of July 22-28.

Darnell made two starts in the week, notching wins against Lehigh Valley July 22 and Norfolk July 27. Darnell pitched a total of 13 innings and allowed eight hits, two earned runs and a walk while striking out 10 - this after his poorest start of the season July 18, when he lasted just 1 2/3 innings against Syracuse. The games were part of an important homestand in which the Wings tied Pawtucket for first place, and moved ahead of Norfolk for the wild card spot.
