TAMPA, Fla. -- Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston has no plans to stop being a two-sport man. "Im just 20-years old," Winston said Tuesday after Florida State lost 8-3 in the New York Yankees spring training opener. "This is my life, man. I want to play both as long as I can. I love both of them. Ive got a strong passion for both." Florida States quarterback in the fall, Winston went 0 for 2 in the Seminoles exhibition game against the Yankees. He grounded out to second base while facing Shane Greene in the sixth and struck out looking on a full-count pitch from Bryan Mitchell two innings later. "Obviously, hes a great talent," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "I guess he had a football injury in the championship game which kept him from hitting for a while. But hes just starting to pick up the bat again. I guess he had torn a ligament in his left index finger." Winston has made three scoreless appearances as a closer this season but didnt get a chance to pitch against his favourite baseball team. Seminoles coach Mike Martin said Winstons arm was a little tender after his outing Saturday. "There were really not any plans for him to pitch," Martin said. "Not throwing today gives him Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday off before he pitches again. We felt that would be the best way to approach it." Florida State plays Miami on Friday. Winston played in the field twice previously this year, getting a hit in his lone at-bat. Against Greene, the 6- foot-4, 230-pound sophomore got a big cheer from the announced crowd of 7,708 at Steinbrenner Field after shattering his bat on foul grounder. "The favourite part of the day was just being out here," Winston said. "Being around a bunch of big league guys, and they proved it. They beat us." Winston talked with his favourite player, Derek Jeter, calling the meeting "surreal." Winston said playing for the Yankees "would be a dream come true." "I guess it feels like when I talk to little kids, how they feel sometimes," Winston said. "Theyre speechless, and thats how I was with Jeter." Winston led the Florida State football team to the national championship in a 34-31 victory over Auburn on Jan. 6. "Im focusing on getting our guys to the College World Series," he said. "Its very important to those guys in that clubhouse, and its very important to the coaches."

LOUIS -- Known for his game-managing and defensive skills, Yadier Molina made another statement with his bat.(SportsNetwork.com) - It took over a year and a half to do it, but the New Jersey Devils finally broke through with a shootout victory. The Devils hope to build off Thursdays win when they welcome the Columbus Blue Jackets in Saturdays Metropolitan Division clash at Prudential Center. Jacob Josefson ended the Devils NHL-record string of 18 consecutive shootout losses, beating Winnipegs Ondrej Pavelec with a head fake for New Jerseys first SO win since March 10, 2013, also against the Jets. The clubs breakaway woes loomed large last season when the Devils finished only five points out of a playoff spot while losing all 13 of its shootouts. The 2-1 win over the Jets also marked New Jerseys first home win of 2014-15, as it improved to 1-1-2 as the host. It was our first home win of the season, and first shootout win in what feels like 10 years, said Devils head coach Peter DeBoer. So we got a couple monkeys off our back and can move forward; it was a big two points. Josefson was the second shooter for New Jersey in the decisive phase of Thursdays game. After Damien Brunner hit the post for the Devils on their first attempt, Josefsons fake sent Pavelec to the ice and gave him plenty of net to shoot at and the 23-year-old Swede calmly wristed the puck over Winnipegs netminder for the lead. It was a classic head fake, Josefson said of his winner. I went to the side and just tried to get it up. Devils goaltender Cory Schneider followed Josefsons tally by stopping both Andrew Ladd and Bryan Little to get Jersey an elusive shootout victory. Michael Ryder tied the game with 3:27 remaining in regulation, and Schneider made 24 saves through overtime. Schneider will get the call in net on Saturday and is 7-2-1 with a 2.05 goals against averrage in 10 career games against Columbus.dddddddddddd The Devils will close their three-game homestand Tuesday when St. Louis visits Newark. The Blue Jackets are hoping for a win tonight after losing their fourth straight games in regulation on Friday. Columbus has been plagued by injuries in the early going and the ailments are clearly affecting the club on the ice. The Blues Jackets have played the whole season so far without forwards Brandon Dubinsky, Nathan Horton and Boone Jenner and top goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky recently went down with a fractured finger. And thats only the tip of the iceberg for the Jackets, as Artem Anisimov, Matt Calvert, Mark Letestu and James Wisniewski are also among Columbus walking wounded. The injury list could be even longer tonight as forward Corey Tropp is questionable for Saturday with an illness. The hobbled Blue Jackets hosted Toronto on Friday and were dealt a 4-1 setback by the Maple Leafs. Phil Kessel and Daniel Winnik both had a goal and two assists to allow Toronto to breeze past Columbus at Nationwide Arena. Curtis McElhinney allowed four goals on 27 shots as Columbus lost for the sixth time in eight games since beginning the season 2-0. We didnt generate nearly enough 5-on-5, said Blue Jackets head coach Todd Richards. Richards could go with Anton Forsberg in net tonight. The 21-year-old Swede has served as the backup to both Bobrovsky and McElhinney this season, but has yet to make his NHL debut. Jersey has won six of the last nine meetings against the Blue Jackets, but Columbus did win the first three encounters of 2013-14 before the Devils notched a 5-2 home win on Feb. 27. The Blue Jackets are 1-4-1 with a tie in seven all-time trips to the Garden State. ' ' '
