Escobar homers for surging Royals in 5-2 win over Marlins

Alcides Escobar homered and drove in two runs to lead the surging Kansas City Royals past the Miami Marlins 5-2 on Thursday night.

For Junction City, last year's 46-27 loss to Derby in the playoffs sticks with them.

The Perry-Lecompton Kaws were just a few plays away last season from having their first winning season since 2011.

Jose Fernandez pitched seven innings and appeared to avoid a serious injury when he tweaked his right leg on his final pitch Wednesday night, helping the Miami Marlins beat Kansas City 3-0 to snap the Royals' nine-game winning streak.

The Washburn Rural Jr. Blues had a bounce back season in 2015 after more than doubling their win total from the previous year.
