Escobar went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and two strikeouts in a 6-5 loss to the Angels on Friday.

Escobar snapped an 0-for-9 stretch with a bunt single in the fourth and pummeled a game-tying two-out home run in the ninth off Los Angeles closer Raisel Iglesias although it ultimately wasn't enough to deliver the victory. Escobar's 15 homers put him among the league leaders; he is performing closer to his excellent 2019 season rather than a subpar 2020.
