Matt Moore tagged with loss as Durham Bulls lose 5th in a row

The Columbus Clippers defeated the Durham Bulls 5-2 Sunday at Durham Bulls Athletic Park, completing a four-game sweep and handing Durham its fifth straight loss.

In his first rehab start with Durham – and fourth overall – left-hander Matt Moore (0-1) allowed three runs on seven hits in 51/3 innings. He struck out seven and walked one. He threw 92 pitches, 67 for strikes. Moore is coming back from Tommy John surgery.

The Bulls are off Monday and resume their seven-game homestand at 7:05 p.m. Tuesday against Toledo. Left-hander Everett Teaford (4-5, 5.63 ERA) opens the three-game series for the Bulls against Buck Farmer (6-2, 3.56).
