Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-4 with a homer and matched a career-high with five RBI in Friday’s 8-1 victory over the Yankees.

Schoop had gone 15 straight games without an RBI, but he broke out in a big way on Friday. He knocked in two runs with a double in the fourth inning before slamming a three-run homer in a six-run fifth inning. The 24-year-old failed to maintain his strong first half, but he’s sitting on 25 homers and 82 RBI.

Jonathan Schoop slugged his 22nd home run as the Orioles fell to the Tigers in Detroit on Friday.

His two-run blast off Michael Fulmer pulled the O's to within a run at 3-2 in the sixth inning. Schoop finished the night 1-for-4 and is now hitting .275/.308/.468 with 22 homers and 75 RBI on the season.

Jonathan Schoop went 3-for-5 and hit a two-run blast in a loss to the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

The jack came in the ninth inning off Blue Jays' closer Roberto Osuna but it wasn't enough to prevent the Orioles from losing. Schoop's semi-breakout campaign last year went largely unnoticed because he only played half the season. This year the 24-year-old has maintained that production over a full season and has provided solid value for savvy owners. He is batting .282 with 21 home runs and 70 RBI.

Jonathan Schoop went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Monday against the Blue Jays.

Schoop made his first start out of the leadoff spot on Monday with Adam Jones (hamstring) out of the lineup. Steve Pearce hit leadoff on Sunday and could get another chance there Tuesday if Jones needs more time.

Jonathan Schoop smacked a solo home run in Monday's victory over the Nationals.

Schoop's dinger to lead off the third inning was the Orioles' first hit of the game. They tacked on three more runs in the fourth, with Mark Trumbo joining Schoop in going deep. Schoop now has a career-high 20 home runs, giving the O's five players that have reached the 20-homer mark. Pedro Alvarez (19) will join the group at some point.

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-5 with a two-RBI double in Thursday's win over the Yankees.

The contest was pretty nip-and-tuck for a while before Schoop plated a pair of runs with a two-bagger off of CC Sabathia in the seventh inning. Schoop entered the game with back-to-back hitless contests, which was remarkably the first time that had happened since May 17-18. The plate discipline obviously still needs plenty of work, but Schoop is having a breakout season with a .296/.328/.510 batting line and 16 homers.

Jonathan Schoop ripped a solo homer in Monday's loss to the Yankees.

Schoop's dinger off of Ivan Nova in the top of the third inning knotted things up at 1-1, but the Yankees answered back with another run in the bottom of the frame and that's all they needed. It's been an unbelievable run for Schoop, who is batting .388 with six homers and 16 RBI over his last 25 games.

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI single to lead the Orioles to a comeback, 3-2 win over the Angels on Saturday.

Schoop was instrumental in the comeback, scoring on a balk to tie the game in the seventh inning before delivering the go-ahead hit in the eighth. The multi-hit game was the fourth for Schoop during his eight-game hitting streak, raising his overall line to .304/.339/.512. Those who had faith in the 24-year-old coming into the season have been handsomely rewarded in the first half.

Jonathan Schoop went 2-for-3 plus a walk, drove in a run and scored a run on Wednesday.

Schoop is quietly having a semi-breakout season at the age of 24. Largely written off after his extremely poor 2014 season, Schoop has been very good ever since. He is now hitting .285 with 12 home runs, 35 runs and 42 RBI on the season.

Jonathan Schoop went 3-for-4 with an RBI and three runs scored Saturday in the Orioles' 4-2 defeat of the Blue Jays.

Schoop doubled and scored the first run of the game in the bottom of the first inning and slugged a solo homer off R.A. Dickey in the bottom of the third. He also had a single. The second baseman has been a useful fantasy commodity all season, now with a .778 OPS, 11 home runs, 38 RBI, and 29 runs scored in 67 games.

Jonathan Schoop had an RBI double and a run scored in a win over the Red Sox on Thursday.

Schoop had a slow start to the year, but the second baseman hit .298/.308/.481 in May and is now batting .283 with nine RBI and seven runs scored in June. He's best known for his power -- Schoop has 10 home runs in 65 games this year -- but his .268/.298/.464 line overall is serviceable as well.

Jonathan Schoop crushed his eighth home run of the season in a losing effort against the Angels on Sunday.

Aside from Schoop's two-run blast in the seventh inning, the O's were held completely in check by Jered Weaver and his lack of velocity. He finished the afternoon 2-for-3 and is now hitting .270/.297/.493 with eight homers and 25 RBI on the season.
