On July 17, 1908 In another classic match-up, Three-Finger Brown and Christy Mathewson pair off with Brown winning, 1 – 0. The Cubs pitcher allows 6 hits, with Matty giving up 7. The only run comes on a 5th-inning inside-the-park home run by Matty’s nemesis, Joe Tinker, who runs through the arms of third base coach Heinie Zimmerman to score. In the 12 match-ups between the two pitchers, Brown has won eight. A tragic occurrence happens during Tinker’s home run dash when a boy, standing on the roof of a nearby building to view the game, falls 50 feet to his death.
