Red Sox's Fister looks for better start against Reds

CINCINNATI -- Boston Red Sox right-hander Doug Fister adjusted his pregame schedule in an effort to improve his first-inning command. He's scheduled to make his 13th start of the season on Sunday afternoon when the Red Sox wrap up a three-game series against the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park.

Boston's magic number to clinch the American League East title now is five. The Red Sox (90-64) lead the second-place New York Yankees by four games in the division standings after the Yankees won on Saturday at Toronto.

In the first inning this season, Fister owns a 9.69 ERA with three home runs, seven doubles, and a triple allowed this season. By the fourth inning, Fister's ERA plummets to 0.77.
