Ortiz hits career homer No. 497; Red Sox beat Phillies 6-2

BOSTON (AP) David Ortiz hit his 497th career home run to get Boston's offense started, and Eduardo Rodriguez pitched seven solid innings as the Red Sox completed a three-game sweep of the Philadelphia Phillies, 6-2 on Sunday.

It was Big Papi's 200th career homer in Fenway Park. The 39-year-old slugger is looking to become the 27th player to reach the 500-homer mark.

Jackie Bradley Jr. added a two-run triple for Boston, which beat the Phillies for the 10th time in the last 12 meetings in Fenway.

It was the seventh win in 10 games for the Red Sox.

Odubel Herrera had three singles and drove in a run for Philadelphia, which is 1-11-2 in it last 14 series against Boston.
