Gomez pitched the second game of the twin-bill and threw a seven-inning shutout – both tilts were seven-inning affairs.  Gomez struck out 11 in the 4-0 win.

Cody Gray also threw a shutout as the Knights prevailed in the first game, 1-0.

Gomez is also a catcher, but head coach Jeremy Kennedy said that “we don’t plan on using Roman behind the plate much, if at all this season.  He is too valuable to us on the mound.”
