BOSTON (AP) — David Ortiz hit his 30th homer of the season Saturday for the ninth time with the Boston Red Sox, setting a club record.

The 39-year-old Ortiz surpassed Hall of Famer Ted Williams' record of eight with a drive that hooked around the Pesky Pole, capping an eight-run fourth inning against Philadelphia.

It was Big Papi's 496th career homer.
