As a boy growing up on the island of Curacao, Jonathan Schoop probably dreamed of four-hit games in the major leagues. He never thought he’d achieve that under the conditions he played in on Friday night.

The rookie infielder, here only because Manny Machado began the season on the disabled list, continued to show he may be able to stay even after Machado comes back.

Schoop had four hits and two RBIs in the Orioles’ 8-4 win over the Boston Red Sox before 36,408 at brutally cold Fenway Park.

At game time, the temperature was 39 degrees, exactly what it was at the start of Wednesday afternoon’s game in Baltimore.

It didn’t bother the 22-year-old Schoop.

“It was really cold. There’s never weather like that in Curacao. But you gotta deal with it and play baseball and try to win,” Schoop said.

Schoop’s bat was essential. So was Brian Matusz’s longest outing as a reliever. That’s because Chris Tillman was only able to make it through five innings.

In those five, Tillman threw 122 pitches, the second most in his career. Tillman (2-1) didn’t have his best stuff on this bitter night, but he gutted his way through five.

“"It was a struggle,” Tillman said. “It was a night where I was battling myself the whole time. Luckily, I was able to execute some pitches when I was in trouble and get through it."

Manager Buck Showalter said that Tillman, who endured a 31-pitch fifth inning when he allowed two runs, is prone to these types of innings against the Red Sox.

“It was a lot more Boston than Chris' lack of effectiveness,” Showalter said.

Tillman allowed three runs on seven hits, walking four and striking out five.

“I inflicted more pain on myself than normal. I think I was kind of shaky with the fastball command tonight, but these guys always fight until the very end. They were fouling pitches off, they were taking good pitches, taking tough pitches, and when you make a mistake they capitalize on it. It's tough,” Tillman said.

Brian Matusz was able to come to Tillman’s aid. Matusz worked 2 2/3 innings, his longest stint since July 2012.

“Fortunately I was able to go out there for a couple innings and now the bullpen is semi-fresh for the next couple games,” Matusz said.

Matusz has been lobbying Showalter to start again, and before the game, the manager told his left-hander that it was likely he’d have to pitch extensively.
