BOSTON (AP) - Justin Ruggiano, Mike Olt and Welington Castillo hit two-run homers to power the Chicago Cubs to a 16-9 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Wednesday night, completing a three-game interleague series sweep.

Ruggiano drove in five runs, Darwin Barney had four hits and Nate Schierholtz added a solo homer for Chicago, which won for the sixth time in seven games away from Wrigley Field and posted its first interleague sweep of three or more games since taking three from Cleveland in 2009.

It was the Cubs' first interleague sweep on the road since winning three against the crosstown rival White Sox in 2007.

Mookie Betts hit his first major league homer for the Red Sox, who lost for the ninth time in 13 games.

Red Sox DH David Ortiz became the 36th player in major league history to collect 1,000 extra-base hits with a ground-rule double.
