Lead acid batteries don't like being discharged flat, and it could now be damaged and unable to hold a charge. It does sound as though the voltage regulator part of the alternator is allowing discharge to ground when it should not. You would seem to have a good warranty claim on the battery given they did check the alternator and pronounce it OK.

It may be a weak fuel pump. They give you a couple chances when failing. Did this happen before? And yes, you may have a poor alternator. Take a volt meter. And test the positive side of alternator. Ground the black wire to the engine or frame. Set the meter for 20 v. Or, take the car to shop. Or, call a mobile auto mechanic.

batterys can be tested and wont show a dead cell at all but you will be told that the battery good
