BOSTON (AP) — Jonathan Schoop went 4 for 5 with two doubles and two RBIs, and the Baltimore Orioles pounded Red Sox starter John Lackey in an 8-4 victory over Boston on Friday night.

Every Orioles starter had at least one hit except for Chris Davis. The Orioles collected 10 of those hits off Lackey (2-2), who surrendered six earned runs over 5 1-3 innings. It was the second straight start in which Lackey gave up six runs and failed to make it out of the sixth inning.

The first four-hit game of Schoop's career extended his hitting streak to seven games.

Orioles starter Chris Tillman (2-1) labored through five innings, throwing 122 pitches and giving up three earned runs on seven hits and four walks. He struck out five.

Nick Markakis led off the game with a double down the left-field line. Red Sox manager John Farrell challenged the call, but it was upheld and Markakis scored on Adam Jones' first hit, a ball fielded by Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts on the outfield grass.

Schoop started the third with a base hit and scored on Markakis' second double to put the Orioles on top 2-0. Nelson Cruz singled four batters later to put the Orioles up 4-0.

Boston scored its first run on Brock Holt's base hit in fourth and added two more in the fifth on RBI singles from Dustin Pedroia and A.J. Pierzynski, who snapped an 0-for-15 stretch with the hit.
