TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida State's Jameis Winston earned his sixth save of the season one day and had an awful outing the next as the Seminoles closed out the regular season last week. The Heisman winner played in three games, but did not have an at-bat.
The Seminoles received the No. 2 seed in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament and begin play Wednesday.
A look at how the 20-year-old sophomore fared last week:
IN RELIEF: Winston entered in the ninth inning of an 8-3 loss to Central Florida on Tuesday and gave up one run before he finished out the inning. Winston recorded the first two outs on a grounder and a flyball before he walked JoMarcos Woods, who stole second and moved to third on an error. Winston then allowed an RBI single before he got the final out on a popup. Winston earned save No. 6 in a 3-0 win against Duke on Thursday. Winston entered in the ninth and retired the side on a popup, a liner and a flyout. Nothing went well in a 9-8 win against Duke on Friday. He took the mound in the ninth inning with a runner on first, two outs and a 1-0 count. Winston was promptly called for his first balk of the season and sent the runner to second. He then got a chopper to the first baseman, but was credited with an error when Winston didn't step on the bag while covering the base on the throw. He gave up a two-run double down the left-field line, then left without recording an out. Winston's pitching line for the week: 2 innings, 2 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 0 K, 1 BB, 10 batters faced.
