Heisman winner Winston records 1st save of 2014
Question of the Day
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida State’s Jameis Winston made his 2014 college baseball debut this weekend with the Seminoles in a season-opening series against Niagara. The Heisman Trophy winner was not available Sunday for the final game of the series. He had to leave for Texas to accept the Davey O’Brien Trophy given to the nation’s top quarterback during a ceremony in Fort Worth on Monday.
A look at how the 20-year-old redshirt sophomore fared against Niagara:
IN RELIEF: The 6-foot-4, 225-pounder earned his first save of the season in Game 2 on Saturday. Winston’s line: 2.0 innings pitched, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 K, 0 BB, 6 batters faced.
AT THE PLATE: Winston made just one plate appearance in the series. He drew a walk as a pinch-hitter and scored a run in Game 1 on Friday. His line: 1 appearance, 0 H, 1 BB, 1 R, 1.000 OB percentage
IN THE FIELD: He played left field in the ninth of Friday’s opener. With Florida State leading 13-2, he caught a fly ball. Winston threw a runner out at third after fielding a bunt while pitching Saturday. That was the first out of the eighth inning with the Seminoles leading 3-1.
HIGHLIGHTS: Winston recorded six consecutive outs in relief after entering Saturday’s game in the eighth inning with runners on first and second with no outs and Florida State leading 3-1.
ON DECK: Florida State plays at Jacksonville on Tuesday.
QUOTEABLE: “I just wanted to get out there and pitch,” Winston told Seminoles.com. “Obviously, I was excited and when they called down to the bullpen. I was ready.”
