ATLANTA — Right-hander Luis Medina was stellar for the A’s in his first start of the season, but it went for naught Sunday as Oakland’s offense generated just two hits during a 3-1 loss to the Atlanta Braves.

Former A’s catcher Sean Murphy drove in the go-ahead run for the Braves with a bloop double in the seventh inning. 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.

Atlanta’s 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.
