Darrell was a righty pitcher from Glendale, California (Casey's home town?) and went to Stanford University before being drafted by the Phils in 1963. The Mets picked him up (on waivers?) in 1964 and he pitched for them in middle relief during 1964-66 before being sent to the minors. After 1967, he was picked up in the minor league draft by Cleveland and pitched briefly for them in 1968, his last MLB appearance.

Darrell had one very memorable game. The Astrodome opened in 1965 and the Mets lost their first seven games there until 8-14-65. Galen Cisco and Larry Dierker matched shutout innings until Casey pinch hit for Cisco in the top of the seventh. Sutherland replaced Cisco and pitched four scoreless innings. He also hit a triple - his only MLB extra-base hit - but did not score. Finally, Larry Dierker left the game after nine scoreless innings and Chuck Hiller scored for the Mets in the top of the tenth on an unearned run. Sutherland finished the game to earn his first MLB win.

The next day, Al Jackson shut out the Astros for the first back-to-back shutouts by Met pitchers in history.
