The Seminoles won 3 of 4 games and are now in the final week of the regular season.

Winston then gave up a Jordan Schulz single to center field. Schulz moved to second on a passed ball and to third when Winston allowed a runner on first with a fielding error. Schulz scored on a fly ball to left field and Winston got out of the inning on a line out to first base. He took the mound again in a 5-4 loss to North Carolina on Sunday and faced just three batters. Winston recorded the first out on a fly ball to center field, gave up a single to right field then got Korey Dunbar to hit into a 5-4-3 double play to end the inning.
