The Red Sox will look to get back to .500 when they arrive at Busch Stadium for the middle matchup of their series against the Cardinals.

St. Louis on Friday struck first in the series after it did “damage” on Brayan Bello. Boston will turn to Kutter Crawford to help it break a three-game losing streak. Crawford’s last start was a loss to the Tampa Bay Rays at Fenway Park last Monday. The right-hander gave up four runs off seven hits, struck out six batters and walked one in six innings.

Ceddanne Rafaela will return to the lineup to give the Red Sox a boost. He’ll get the nod at center field and bat at the bottom of the order. Former Cardinals outfielder Tyler O’Neill will be the designated hitter, and Garrett Cooper will move to first base.
