Timlin pitched a perfect 6th inning in last night's AAA Pawtucket win over the Lehigh Valley IronPigs (formerly the Ottawa Lynx). He faced three batters, and got each one of them to ground out. He threw 10 pitches, 7 of which were strikes. He also hit 92 on the radar gun (but who knows if the gun was juiced or not).
Timlin should re-join the Sox on Friday when they begin a 3 game set with the Yankees. With the struggles of the Sox middle-relief, it will be a welcome sight to see #50 warming up in the pen.
Some more good news out of Rhode Island is that Craig Hansen has been nearly unhittable. He threw 2 perfect innings in the win over Lehigh Valley, and has allowed only 1 hit in 6 innings this season.
