The former Matador went 11-0 on the mound this past season, and was the only pitcher in the nation at the NCAA Division II level to finish the year without a loss and at least 11 wins.  

Gerlich tied for the Heartland Conference lead in wins (11) and starts (14), tied for eighth in the league in strikeouts (61), and ninth in innings pitched (85).  

He finished the 2014 season with a 3.92 ERA and led the Lubbock Christian pitching staff with three complete games.  

Gerlich helped the Chaps go 39-10 and finish first in the Heartland Conference standings with a 26-4 league record.  

He was named the Heartland Conference Pitcher of the Week for games played during the week of April 21.  

Gerlich, an imposing presence on the mound at 6’3” and 240 lbs,  began his college baseball career at Odessa College before transferring to Lubbock Christian.
