Dave Duncan from the Chronology
Oct 2, 2005 - Felipe Lopez, Adam Dunn and Austin Kearns hit consecutive homers in the third inning to knock Matt Morris out of the box. Down 5–1, the Cardinals use eight relievers while emerging with a 7-5 win. Reggie Sanders and Chris Duncan go back-to back in the fifth inning. It is the first major-league homer for Duncan, the son of former major league catcher and current Cardinals pitching coach Dave Duncan.
Jun 30, 1975 - After losing to Boston 5-2 in game 1 Baltimore C Dave Duncan ties the ML record with 4 consecutive doubles (he'll total just 7 doubles for the year) during an 8-2 win over first-place Boston in game 2. Compounding the loss Boston P Dick Pole suffers a broken cheek when he is hit by a line drive off the bat of 1B Tony Muser.
Aug 27, 1974 - Hal McRae ties the ML record with 6 extra-base hits-5 doubles and a HR-as the Royals split a doubleheader with the Indians. Kansas City loses the opener, 12-8 and wins the second game, 13-3. McRae has a HR and 3 doubles in game one to drive in 6 runs. He adds 2 doubles in the nitecap. Rico Carty has 4 hits for Cleveland in the first game while teammate Joe Lis homers in each game. George Brett records an unusual strikeout in the 3rd inning of game one when he fouls a ball off his foot and Catcher Dave Duncan throws to 1B. Umpire Odom calls Brett out and when Brett argues too vehemently, he is ejected. The umps confer and then decide to reverse the call at first base, ruling it a foul ball. But the ejection stands. It is Odom’s second ejection of the game: he had earlier tossed Kansas City coach Bob Aspromonte for protesting that McRae interfered with Duncan on a throw home. Umpire Phillips had ejected Cleveland coach Larry Doby from the dugout on the same play. John Mayberry pinch hits for Brett and strikes out.
Jun 17, 1967 - A 9-hour and 5-minute doubleheader between the Tigers and Athletics is the longest ever. The first game includes a rain delay and the 2nd goes 19 innings before a Dave Duncan HR wins it 6-5 for the A's. Detroit takes the opener 7-6.
