Gavin Floyd's results were mixed in his fourth rehab start with Gwinnett on Thursday.

Gwinnett Braves 4, Columbus Clippers 5 (11 innings)

Gwinnett was beat in 11 innings Thursday evening, eventually falling to the Columbus Clippers 5-4. Gavin Floyd made his fourth rehab appearance with the club, and his results were mixed. He allowed two runs on five hits in five and one-thirds innings of work, but the righty walked three and fanned only one, giving up a first inning home run to Matt Carson. He threw 63 percent of his pitches for strikes, inducing seven groundouts and four flyouts. Mark Lamm blew the save, giving up an eighth inning home run to Nyjer Morgan. He allowed four hits in three innings of work, walking two and fanning three. Andrew Russell gave up the winning run in the 11th, taking the loss. Offensively, three players (Constanza, Terdoslavich, and Hamilton) had two hits and a double apiece. Ernesto Mejia also added a double to the attack, bringing his season line to .354/.420/.684 with a 1.004 OPS over his past ten games. Tommy La Stella continued his solid hitting, collecting two singles in the contest.
