He finished second in ERA, sixth in BB/9, seventh in WHIP, and ninth in K/9 among pitchers on this list. He best game was on July 10 at New Market, when he fired four shutout innings, allowing four hits, no walks, and striking out four. He did not give up an earned run in his first ten innings for Charlottesville, and, interestingly, the team won all six regular season games he appeared in.
