BOSTON -- One year and one day ago, Doug Fister made his final start of the season for the Houston Astros.
On Friday, he will be on the mound for the Red Sox with a chance to beat his former team and clinch an American League East championship for Boston in the process.
The Red Sox (92-67) would wrap up the division with a win against the Astros on Friday or a New York Yankees loss to the Toronto Blue Jays. Boston leads by three games with three remaining.
