COLLEGes

Winston in bench-clearing melee

JACKSONVILLE — Two Gators and one Seminole were ejected in the eighth inning of Florida's 4-1 win Tuesday night.

A bench-clearing melee, which included FSU's Heisman Trophy winner and pitcher Jameis Winston, resulted in the ejections. FSU's D.J. Stewart hit a roller down the first-base line that UF P Danny Young fielded. Stewart ran through Young, knocking him and 1B Zack Powers to the ground. Powers confronted Stewart, who shoved Powers, then both benches emptied. Umpires and police officers separated the teams. Stewart, Young and Powers were ejected.

FSU (19-5) starter Peter Miller of Lutz gave up two earned runs in five innings to take the loss. UF is 16-9.

USF: South Florida (15-9) gave up five unearned runs in the second inning in losing to FIU (21-4) 9-0 at USF Baseball Stadium.

FOOTBALL: Georgia coach Mark Richt said he's still deciding how to discipline four players arrested last week on charges of illegal check cashing. S Tray Matthews, DL Jonathan Taylor, LB James DeLoach and WR Uriah LeMay are participating in spring practice.

NAVY: Will McKamey, who has been hospitalized since collapsing at practice three days ago, has died while in a coma. He was 19. The freshman RB from Knoxville, Tenn., collapsed during spring practice and was airlifted to the hospital. McKamey was hospitalized in 2012 with a brain injury but was cleared to play.

Manchester City wins easily at rival United

Edin Dzeko scored two goals to lead visiting Manchester City past rival Manchester United 3-0. Manchester United is assured of its fewest points since the Premier League began in 1992-93.

United fans shouted expletives at chairman Alex Ferguson who hired Moyes as his successor. In other matches, host Arsenal and Swansea tied at 2 and Everton won at Newcastle 3-0.
