Charlie Morton, Braves shut down Athletics 3-1 to take series on Murphy's bloop double

ATLANTA (AP) — Sean Murphy drove in the go-ahead run with a bloop double in the seventh inning and the Atlanta Braves limited the Oakland Athletics to two hits in a 3-1 win Sunday.

Charlie Morton allowed one hit in six scoreless innings, but he ended up with a no-decision when the A's tied the game in the top of the seventh inning on a home-run by Zack Gelof.

Murphy's double down the right-field line knocked in Adam Duval for what proved to be the winning run and allowed the Braves to take the series 2-1.
