Fister (pictured) gave up one run on just four hits, two of them back-to-back doubles in the bottom of the first inning. He struck out five and only walked one.

In his last three starts, Fister has a 2-1 record with a 1.57 ERA. In 23 innings pitched, he has struck out eighteen and walked only five.

Trailing 1-0 in the top of the third, Eduardo Nunez slammed a two-run homer to put the Red Sox in the lead. Andrew Benintendi made it 3-1 with a solo shot in the fifth; Hanley Ramirez completed the scoring with his 22nd home run of the year in the seventh.

Addison Reed tossed a clean eighth inning and Craig Kimbrel closed the game out for his 32nd save of the season.

Dustin Pedroia was back in the lineup and had a single in four at bats. He also made a great defensive play to rob former teammate Jacoby Ellsbury of a base hit.
