Medlen was pulled after 7 1/3 innings with a runner on first for Scott Downs to come in and give up two hits, including an RBI-double to Anthony Rizzo to tie the game. David Carpenter came in and surrendered the go-ahead run on a Dioner Navarro RBI-single.
That spoiled an otherwise terrific outing for Medlen, who gave up six hits and struck out six, only giving up a run when Downs allowed his inherited runner to score.
Other than Gattis' single, only three other Braves recorded hits, including two by Chris Johnson.
The Braves' magic number stands at one, meaning a Washington Nationals loss to the Miami Marlins would clinch their first division title since 2005.
