Pitcher Joe Kerrigan of the Montreal Expos was the winning pitcher in both games of a doubleheader against the St. Louis Cardinals on September 8, 1976; the two victories were Kerrigan's first two in the majors and the only two games he would win that season. He was only the fourth pitcher in history to do this, following Rube Vickers, Ted Lyons and Chi-Chi Olivo, and no one has done it since.
After his playing career ended, Kerrigan was the Expos bullpen coach from 1983 to 1986, minor league pitching coach from 1987 to 1991 and their pitching coach from 1992 to 1996. He was pitching coach of the Jacksonville Expos in 1987, Indianapolis Indians in 1988-1990 and Harrisburg Senators in 1991. He moved on to become the Boston Red Sox pitching coach from 1997 to 2001, when he replaced skipper Jimy Williams on August 16th and stayed for the remainder of the season. However, the Sox played poorly after the change, and his services were not retained after the end of the year. Kerrigan was the Philadelphia Phillies pitching coach in 2003 and 2004, and in 2006 he joined the New York Yankees as bullpen coach.
