Boston
VS
Oakland
Doug Fister (5-2 with a 2.79 ERA) is scheduled to start for the AL East-leading Red Sox in the middle game of their three-game set with the Oakland Athletics at Fenway Park.The veteran right-hander has been impressive of late, lasting at least seven innings in each of his previous four starts.He yielded 1 run on 4 hits and struck out nine batters through seven innings in the last of them, a 6-1 home win against the Blue Jays on Sept. 6.Fister went 1-3 with a 4.73 ERA in his first five starts with the Red Sox, compared to a 4-2 record and a 2.93 ERA over his past six contests.In addition to that, the 33-year-old is 8-7, but with a 2.88 ERA in seventeen career starts versus Oakland, including a 3-1 record and a 0.98 ERA in four starts last season (while with the Astros).Jed Lowrie, Matt Joyce and Marcus Semien are hitting .170 (8-for-47) against him.Oakland turns to Jharel Cotton (7-10 with a 5.82 ERA), who has obvious problems of late, as the 25-year-old was tagged for 4 runs in four innings of a 6-7 loss in Seattle on Aug. 2, before surrendering 7 hits and 7 runs (including three homers) over five innings of a 9-8 home win against the Astros last Friday.In fact, Cotton has posted a 6.52 ERA in seven starts since the beginning of August.It will be his first start against the Red Sox.I think that the Boston Red Sox will manage to win that game, most probably with more than one run difference.
