LOS ANGELES (AP) — Huascar Ynoa was scratched with shoulder inflammation from his scheduled start for the Atlanta Braves against the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 4 of the NL Championship Series.

Manager Brian Snitker says Ynoa first experienced discomfort on Monday, but believed he would be able to pitch. The right-hander played catch before Wednesday's game, but his shoulder was tight.

The Braves will use right-hander Jesse Chavez as the opener. The Braves lead the series 2-1.

The Dodgers will start left-hander Julio Urias, who was baseball's only 20-game winner this season.
