Butler, Escobar rally Royals to 2-1 lead in Game 2

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Billy Butler and Alcides Escobar had run-scoring hits off Jake Peavy, and the Kansas City Royals took a 2-1 lead over San Francisco after three innings Wednesday night as they tried to even the World Series at a game apiece.

Gregor Blanco started the game with a home run for the Giants off hard-throwing rookie Yordano Ventura, but the Royals came back with runs in the first and second innings to take their first lead of the Series.

After the ceremonial first pitch from retired Royals star George Brett, Blanco drove Ventura's eighth pitch, a 98 mph fastball, into the Kansas City bullpen for his first home run since Sept. 22. It was the 10th home run by the opening batter of a Series game, the first since Boston's Johnny Damon in 2004.
