Bisons end roadie with loss

COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Pitching served the Buffalo Bisons well in back-to-back victories over Columbus, but on Friday night it was the Clippers' Chris Seddon's turn to shine.

The left-hander worked 7 2/3 innings and allowed one run while scattering six hits and striking out seven as the Herd fell to Columbus, 9-1.

The Bisons, who return to Coca-Cola Field to open an eight-game homestand tonight, were shutout through seven innings. They finally scored in the eighth on Corey Wimberly double to right that scored Sean Kazmar. Matt Harvey (5-2) took the loss against the Clippers, who led 4-0 before scoring three runs in the seventh and two more in the eighth to put the game away. Tim Fedroff went 3 for 4 with two RBIs for Columbus.

Also on Friday, the Bisons announced that pitcher Jack Egbert cleared waivers and accepted his assignment to the team and placed pitcher Chuck Jones on the disabled list with left shoulder tendinitis, retroactive to Wednesday.

It will be Star Wars night at Coca-Cola Field tonight (6:05, Radio 1520). Norfolk will send 25th-year veteran Jamie Moyer to the hill. The 49-year-old Moyer has played for eight big-league teams and is 269-209. He holds the record for being the oldest pitcher to ever win a game in Major League baseball.

Moyer pitched for the Baltimore Orioles, Norfolk's parent team, from 1993-95 and went 25-22 with a 4.41 ERA before signing as a free agent with the Boston Red Sox in 1996.

Right-hander Jenrry Mejia (0-0, 1.59) is scheduled to take the mound for the Herd.
