Timlin works out of jam

Mike Timlin did a nice job working out of a jam in the 10th. Timlin, who squandered Bostn’s 9-8 lead n Friday night night stranded a pair of baserunners.
After Mark Grudzielanek had reached with a single against Keith Foulke, Timlin came in to face Mike Sweeney. Mark Loretta, who entered the game as a pinch-hitter in the seventh, booted Sweeney’s grounder.
But Timlin sucked it up and retired Shane Costa and Ryan Shealy to set up the bottom of the 10th.
