Josh Beckett, who allowed one run over two innings on Wednesday against the Twins, will face off against New Hampshire native Chris Carpenter and the Cardinals at 1 p.m. in Fort Myers.

Terry Francona's lineup is fully stocked, with exception of Jacoby Ellsbury (Bill Hall is playing left) and Adrian Beltre (Angel Sanchez is playing third base).

Here's what Tito's Monday afternoon lineup will look like:

Marco Scutaro SS
Dustin Pedroia 2B
Victor Martinez C
Kevin Youkilis 1B
David Ortiz DH
J.D. Drew RF
Mike Cameron CF
Bill Hall LF
Angel Sanchez 3B

Josh Beckett
Jonathan Papelbon
Hiddeki Okajima
Dustin Richardson
Ramon Ramirez
Manny Delcarmen

Cardinals Pitching:
Chris Carpenter
Pete Parise
Jason Mottte
Trever Miller
Charlie Zink

St. Louis made 10 cuts from its major league roster on Sunday. Included in the trimming was former Red Sox knuckleballer Charlie Zink, who will be facing his old club Monday afternoon.

Zink appeared in just one game for Boston, when he was shelled for eight earned runs over 4 1/3 innings against the Rangers in 2008, but was a member of the organization since 2002. He won 14 games for the PawSox in 2008 but went 6-15 for Pawtucket last summer.
