BOSTON – Jonathan Schoop went 4 for 5 with two doubles and two RBI, and the Baltimore Orioles pounded Red Sox starter John Lackey in an 8-4 victory over Boston last 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 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’s 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’s 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.

Tillman struck out Jackie Bradley with runners on first and second to end the Red Sox threat in the fifth.

Baltimore scored two runs in the fifth on singles by Matt Wieters and J.J. Hardy, and added a run in the seventh and another in the ninth on the doubles by Schoop.

Darren O’Day recorded the last four outs for his first save of the year.

David Ortiz took a scheduled night off. Mike Carp took his place in the lineup and had two hits, as did Holt. Every Boston starter had at least one hit.

The Red Sox were beneficiaries of a replay in the seventh, when it showed that Holt beat out a throw from Orioles second baseman Steve Lombardozzi for a base hit. The next three Red Sox were retired on ground balls, squandering the scoring opportunity.

NOTES

∎ Boston OF Shane Victorino will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Pawtucket today. Victorino has not played this season due to a strained right hamstring.

∎ Holt was recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket earlier in the day. The Red Sox designated IF Ryan Roberts for assignment.

Rays 11, Yankees 5

James Loney drove in four runs and Tampa Bay overcame a four-run deficit to beat New York.

Pinch-hitter Desmond Jennings had an RBI single before Loney’s two-run single off Adam Warren (0-1) in the seventh inning that gave Tampa Bay a 6-5 lead.

Sean Rodriguez hit a two-run homer during a five-run eighth that made it 11-5. Wil Myers, who finished with three RBI, added a two-run single.

Yankees reliever Cesar Cabral was thrown out of the game by plate umpire Joe West after hitting his third batter, Logan Forsythe, in the eighth after Myers’s hit.

Rangers 12, White Sox 0

Martin Perez pitched a three-hitter for his first career shutout, Leonys Martin drove in four runs and Texas routed Chicago.

Martin homered and was one of four Texas batters with three hits apiece. Robinson Chirinos also went deep.

Angels 11, Tigers 6

Albert Pujols hit his 497th home run and Howie Kendrick added two of his own to lead Los Angeles over Detroit.

The Angels chased Detroit starter Drew Smyly (1-1) after three innings.

Blue Jays 3, Indians 2

Melky Cabrera had four hits and scored Toronto’s go-ahead run in the seventh inning on Edwin Encarnacion’s single, and the Blue Jays held on for the win over Cleveland.

Royals 5, Twins 0

Jason Vargas pitched seven shutdown innings, Mike Moustakas cracked a two-run homer and Kansas City romped to the victory over Minnesota.
