After serving as the hero in Sunday’s series finale against the New York Yankees, Justin Turner will get the night off when the Boston Red Sox open their four-game series against the Houston Astros on Monday.

The Astros lead the Red Sox in the American League Wild Card race by 3 1/2 games.

Triston Casas will return to the lineup after missing the last two games due to a dental procedure. Casas will replace Turner at first base and bat fourth.

Jarren Duran also will not start after suffering a toe injury Sunday. The Red Sox outfield will feature Masataka Yoshida, Adam Duvall and Alex Verdugo, from left to right.

Left-hander James Paxton will return to the mound for Boston. Paxton is coming off a six-inning performance in which he limited to the Washington Nationals to two runs on five hits last week.

The Astros will counter with right-hander Christian Javier.
