Chris Taylor run-saving catch in NLCS Game 7

MILWAUKEE — Chris Taylor started Game 7 of the National League Championship Series at second base, but he made a fantastic, run-saving catch in deep left-center field to end the fifth inning on Saturday at Miller Park.

Lorenzo Cain stood on second base with two outs when Dodgers left-hander Julio Urias entered the game to face Brewers right fielder and National League MVP Award favorite Christian Yelich. Yelich ripped a 0-2 fastball to left-center field. The ball left his bat at 97.8 mph, according to Statcastâ„¢, and looked like a sure-fire extra-base hit.

But Taylor, who moved from second to left when Enrique Hernandez pinch-hit for Joc Pederson in the third, ran down the ball. He sprinted 85 feet and reached up with his glove at the last moment to make that catch before sliding onto the warning track. The catch ended the inning and preserved the Dodgers’ 2-1 lead.
