On June 4 1906 — Unable to shake the effects of diphtheria contracted in the spring‚ a frustrated Christy Mathewson throws a rare tantrum after giving up 4 runs to the Phils on 2 hits and 6 walks in the first inning‚ and umpire Bill Klem in turn throws him out of the game. Hooks Wiltse relieves and picks up a victory as New York rallies to win‚ 9 – 6.
