Wade Miley threw the first complete game of his career, David Ortiz inched closer to 500 career home runs, and Xander Bogaerts hit an unusual "grand slam" as the Red Sox smothered the Phillies 9-2 at Fenway Park.

Miley was perfect through the first four innings in winning his 11th game of the year. He was charged with two runs on five hits. He struck out eight and didn't walk a batter.

The Red Sox scored eight runs in the fourth inning to put this one away. Blake Swihart had an RBI single, Jackie Bradley Jr. double home two more, and Bogaerts cleared the bases with a double and ultimately scored on a throwing error.

Ortiz completed the scoring with his 30th home run of the year, marking the ninth time he's reached that mark in a season, moving him past Ted Williams in that department. It was also the 496th home run of his career.

Mookie Betts led the Boston offense with three hits. Ortiz, Swihart, Josh Rutledge and JBJ each had two.
