by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar is leading off in the team's announced lineup for Game 1 of the World Series Tuesday against the Giants.

Escobar led off just 16 times while playing all 162 games during the regular season, but he's been the man atop the lineup in each of the Royals' first eight postseason games -- all wins. He'll be followed by right fielder Norichika Aoki, center fielder Lorenzo Cain, first baseman Eric Hosmer, designated hitter Billy Butler, left fielder Alex Gordon, catcher Salvador Perez, second baseman Omar Infante and third baseman Mike Moustakas.

Alcides Escobar rebounds in first half after down 2013
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar proved in the first half that his breakout 2012 campaign wasn't a fluke, as he turned in a .283/.320/.386 line with two home runs, 29 RBI and 22 stolen bases in 332 at-bats.

Escobar managed to hit just .234/.259/.300 last season while swiping 22 bases in 607 at-bats. He's done a much better job across the board, coming close to his .293/.331/.390 line from 2012. He enjoyed an excellent first half that season as well before cooling off after the break, which he'll try to avoid moving forward.
