Posted: Updated:
The Florida State baseball team scored five unanswered runs to come-from-behind and beat Virginia 6-4 in the ACC Tournament Saturday night in Greensboro, NC.

The Cavaliers were leading 4-1 in the 7th, but the bullpen combination of Connor Jones and Josh Sborz surrendered four runs on three hits and three walks, giving FSU the lead.

The Seminoles added another run in the 8th, and Jameis Winston pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning to cap off the victory.

UVa had taken an early 2-1 lead on a two-run home run by Brandon Downes in the 3rd inning.

They added another run in the 3rd, and one more in the 6th to go up 4-1.

Nathan Kirby pitched six innings for the 'Hoos, and did not give up an earned run.

The match-up between the Cavaliers and the Seminoles was the last game in Pool Play, and didn't finish until close to midnight.

The earlier games in Greensboro ran long, pushing the 7 PM start between UVa and FSU back to 8:36 PM.

Virginia (44-13) will find out its seeding for the NCAA Baseball Tournament Monday at noon.
