The Norwalk, Calif., native allowed zero or one earned run in 11 of his 14 appearances and tossed five complete games with three shutouts. Gomez worked seven or more innings on eight occasions, including nine-inning shutouts versus Union University and UVA-Wise. He gave up just three hits in nine innings versus Georgetown College and worked 7.2 scoreless frames against St. Catharine College.
Gomez allowed one earned run in eight innings at Tennessee Wesleyan and one run in nine innings at Campbellsville University during the regular season. He tossed 10 shutout frames versus Campbellsville in the Mid-South Conference Championships, giving up just five total baserunners in 10 innings in the contest versus Campbellsville, a game the Bulldogs eventually lost, 2-0.
