It takes a lot to shake a team – or a player – out of a slump. The most important ingredients in doing so are solid defense and consistent hitting. To get anywhere, there must be at least one of those two. The Columbus Clippers (22-26) are a team in a slump, and the absence of both those traits led to a 5-1 loss against the Durham Bulls (30-21) on Sunday evening.
