Since he was pinned to the cross, he couldn't use Improved Evasion even if he had it, and thus took damage. And this is based on the assumption that a spear hit is being resisted with saves instead of AC, which seems a bit odd in the first place. Seeing as you mentioned flat footed-ness, it seems you actually meant it was AC and not a saving throw.
The 3 week correspondence course from the First Amalgated D&D Theology University was wasted on you, it seems.
