Losing ace Chris Gerard for six or so starts played a large role in this

team’s demise. Gerard, because of an injury, was limited to 8 starts and 41.2 innings. He led the Hokie starters in ERA at 3.02 and had 48 K’s. In last year’s shortened season Gerard pitched 23 innings to an ERA of 1.57 with 29 K’s and only 4 walks. In 2019, as a freshman, Gerard pitched 55.1 innings to an ERA of 2.77 with 44 K’s. When Gerard went down, Connolly had to start in his place meaning Connolly could no longer close which he did well early in the year. This does not apologize for the fact that our offense went south but losing Gerard cost us several ACC games. And he didn’t pitch in Charlotte either.
