The Durham Bulls are in the doldrums, and the offense has been the problem.

Charlie Montoyo’s club dropped its fourth straight game on a day the manager was ejected for the first time this
season, dropping a 5-2 road decision to the Toledo Mud Hens.

The Bulls have scored just six runs during the skein.

It was such a bad day that ace Jeremy Hellickson (6-2) suffered his second loss.

Ryan Ketchner (1-2) was the winning pitcher, while Casey Fien collected his second save.

Robinzon Diaz led Toledo with three hits including a double. Scott Sizemore added a double and a single with two RBI.

Alvin Colina led the Bulls with two hits and an RBI.

The Bulls return home Saturday night against the Pawtucket Red Sox.

Thursday’s game
Bulls at Toledo, 6:30 p.m.

Heath Phillips (L, 3-3, 4.59) vs. Max Scherzer (R, 0-0, 0.00)
