Dodgers vs. Braves live score, updates, highlights from 2021 NLCS Game 6

The last thing Braves fans want is for this series to go seven games.

This might be a different year, but the 2020 NLCS between the Braves and Dodgers — when Atlanta blew a 3-1 advantage vs. Los Angeles — is still fresh in everyone’s minds. After going up 3-1 on the Dodgers in this year’s series, the Braves lost Game 5 11-2, the final game before the two sides play up to two in Atlanta.

Both teams will turn to starters who are looking to erase memories of their previous outing. The Dodgers hand the ball to Walker Buehler, who is pitching on short rest. (Scheduled starter Max Scherzer was scratched because of arm fatigue.) He started Game 3 and lasted just 3 2/3 innings, allowing four runs — two earned — on six hits, with three walks and three strikeouts.

Atlanta will turn to Ian Anderson, who started Game 2. He went three innings, allowing two runs — both earned — on three hits, with three walks and a pair of strikeouts.

Despite the short starts, the Dodgers and Braves won the respective games in which Buehler and Anderson pitched.

Both pitchers delivered standout campaigns during the regular season. Buehler emerged as a Cy Young candidate, pitching to a 2.47 ERA with a 26 percent strikeout rate and a 6,4 percent walk rate in 207 2/3 innings. Anderson pitched to a 3.58 ERA in 128 1/3 innings as a rookie, fanning 23.2 percent of opposing batters and walking 9.9 percent.
