Royals | Alcides Escobar perfect on base paths
Kansas City Royals SS Alcides Escobar set a franchise record Monday Sept. 2, against the Seattle Mariners, picking up two stolen bases. He is now a perfect 18-for-18 on the season, which is a record for consecutive steals without getting caught. The previous record was set by former OF Gary Thurman, who was 16-for-16 during the 1989 season. Former OF Carlos Beltran holds the franchise record for most consecutive steals without being caught, swiping 33 straight bags from Sept. 28, 1999 to Aug. 10, 2001.
