Jameis Winston returns to mound

Jameis Winston pitched one inning in Florida State's 9-4 win over Stetson University on Tuesday, his first game back from a suspension following a shoplifting incident.

Winston faced five batters, and gave up one hit and an unearned run. He struck out one and threw 24 pitches, 14 for strikes.

Winston did not address the media after the game.

Winston was reinstated to Florida State's baseball team Sunday.

The Heisman Trophy winner was issued a civil citation in the shoplifting case and entered a program that required 20 hours of community service. The 20-year-old two-sport star is the closer on the baseball team and missed the three-game series against Minnesota this weekend. He was issued the citation April 29 after he walked out of a supermarket without paying for $32 worth of crab legs and crawfish.

Baseball coach Mike Martin had conferred with football coach Jimbo Fisher and decided to suspend Winston until he completed the community service.

The 6-foot-4, 235-pound Winston led the Florida State football team to an undefeated season and a national championship. He leads the Seminoles' baseball team with five saves.
