ARLINGTON, Texas — The Los Angeles Dodgers were without Chris Taylor for their 3-1 win in Game 6 of the National League Championship Series against the Atlanta Braves on Saturday because he has a right ankle injury.

Manager Dave Roberts said Taylor was moving around and feeling better than expected. Roberts indicated the versatile player was available to play if needed but Taylor did not see action as the Dodgers staved off elimination again to force Game 7 on Sunday.

Enrique Hernandez started at second base for the Dodgers against Braves left-hander Max Fried. A.J. Pollock was in left field.

Atlanta, trying to get to its first World Series since 1999, had its same lineup as Game 5 to face Dodgers right-hander Walker Buehler.

Taylor injured his right ankle on a throw from the left-field line in the eighth inning Friday night. Taylor finished the game.

It was only the second time this postseason that Taylor didn’t start for the Dodgers. He has started seven times at second base, and Game 5 of the NLCS was the fifth time in those games that he had a midgame switch to left. His other two starts in these playoffs came in left field.
