July 20, 1998 John Lux delivers an RBI single in the bottom of the sixth inning to give Tamaqua a 4-3 walk-off win over Jim Thorpe in the District 18 Little League tournament. With two outs in the sixth, Ryan Gerber and Alex Zukus both work walks before Lux lines a hit up the middle to plate Gerber with the winning run. Zukus tosses a four-hitter and strikes out 12 for the mound win and also blasts a two-run homer. Lux finishes with two hits while Gerber scores two runs. Jim Bumbulsky also aids the Tamaqua cause with an RBI single.
