Gomez, who scored his side's second at the weekend in the 63rd minute after Thomas Muller had opened the scoring six minutes before the break, admitted their opponents had given them a tough time, but stressed they had to win such games if they wanted to be crowned champions.
"Augsburg are left there stranded on eight points," he told the club's official website. "But they play very good football at home, as we saw again [on Saturday].
"These are the games you have to win if you're to be champions. And we've won again."
Given Augsburg are currently battling against relegation, some claimed Bayern should have won by a bigger margin, although captain Philipp Lahm was having none of that.
"We didn't plan to let Augsburg take the initiative at the start," he added. "We wanted to go for it from the start and keep our shape, but it didn't work out.
"However, we were still the better team in the first half. We did deserve the first goal because we had the better chances.
"At the end of the day, winning is what matters."
Bayern are now 11 points ahead of nearest challengers Bayer Leverkusen, and a further three ahead of defending champions Borussia Dortmund.
