BOSTON (AP) -Mike Timlin's 1,000th major league appearance was one he'd probably like to forget.
The 41-year-old right-handed reliever allowed four runs and four hits with a walk, retiring only two batters for the Boston Red Sox in Friday night's 9-8 loss to the Baltimore Orioles. That ended his scoreless streak at 11 1-3 innings.
He is the 13th pitcher to reach the milestone and could jump into 10th place before the season ends. Mike Jackson appeared in 1,005 games. Jesse Orosco holds the career record of 1,252.
Timlin replaced lefty Javier Lopez with a runner on first and no outs in the sixth with Baltimore leading 4-3. Of the seven batters he faced, four got hits - including a three-run homer by Nick Markakis - one walked, and two had sacrifice flies. He was replaced by Kyle Snyder with the score 9-3.
