orida State's Jameis Winston started his first two games of the season last week -- both as a designated hitter -- had his first extra-base hit of the season and earned his second save of the year.
A look at how the 20-year-old sophomore fared last week:
IN RELIEF: The 6-foot-4, 225-pounder recorded his second save of the season in a 4-1 win against South Florida on Wednesday. He entered in the ninth inning and the first batter reached on a fielding error by the third baseman. Winston retired the next three batters on two ground balls and fly out to left field. His pitching line for the week: 1 inning, 0 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 0 K, 0 BB, 4 batters faced.
AT THE PLATE: During the week, Winston was 1 for 10 in four games. On Wednesday South Florida, Winston went 1 for 4 as the designated hitter and had an RBI double to right field in the first inning. Winston later scored on a John Sansone single. Winston ground out the next three at-bats. He was 0 for 4 in the series opener against Maryland on Friday, including two strikeouts. Winston's line this week: 4 games, 1 H, 0 BB, 1 RBI, 1 R, 1 HBP.
IN THE FIELD: Winston entered the game in the top of the seventh inning Sunday and played right field. He did not field a ball.
HIGHLIGHT: The RBI double against South Florida was both Winston's first RBI and his first extra-base hit of the season.
ON THE SEASON: Winston has three hits in 12 at-bats and is batting .250; on the mound, he has pitched six innings, struck out three of the 20 batters he's faced, has given up one hit, no walks and has two saves with a 0.00 ERA.
