The Boston Red Sox will try to claim a series split as they host the Tampa Bay Rays at Fenway Park on Thursday night.

Boston is fresh off a 4-3 loss to Tampa Bay on Wednesday.

Red Sox manager Alex Cora will make a few changes to the lineup card, with left fielder Rob Refsnyder, catcher Reese McGuire and second baseman Vaughn Grissom all inserted. They’ll replace Tyler O’Neill, Connor Wong and David Hamilton at those positions, respectively.

Right-hander Cooper Criswell will get the start for the Red Sox. Criswell has gone five innings in three of his last four starts. He gave up two runs on three hits with nine strikeouts against the Washington Nationals last week.
