Darnell McDonald likes extreme weather, apparently.
After being one of the Red Sox’ best hitters during spring training, McDonald cooled off considerably during the team’s first few games. When the mercury dropped on Friday night, however, McDonald’s bat heated up and his clutch hitting broke the game open for the Sox en route to another big win.
So, NESN Nation’s Dan Duquette is awarding McDonald our “Windy City Winner” award for his breakout performance. Who’s yours? Vote in the poll below and leave your thoughts on the game in the comments.
