TORONTO -- David Ortiz has his place in Rogers Centre history, and it has come from tormenting the Toronto Blue Jays.

With his three-run home run off R.A. Dickey on Wednesday night, the Boston Red Sox slugger passed Alex Rodriguez as the visiting player with the most home runs in the stadium's history.

Ortiz's home run, his fourth of the series, was his 37th in the building formerly known as SkyDome in his 107th game here.

By hitting at least one home run in each of the first three games in Toronto this week, Ortiz made it three in a row for the first time since June 17-20, 2012.

On Sunday before the Red Sox got to town, Ortiz said he was about to get "hotter than Jamaica in the middle of August."

After two homers Monday, Ortiz walked by reporters in the clubhouse saying only, "Put it down like this: I'm on my way to Jamaica."
