Dyson joins Escobar with 30 steals

CLEVELAND -- Royals speedsters Jarrod Dyson and Alcides Escobar have formed their own 30/30 club.

When Dyson stole his 30th base in the third inning on Sunday against the Indians, he joined Escobar, who has 32, at that level. Thus, they became the first two Royals to have 30 or more steals in the same year since Willie Wilson (43) and Lonnie Smith (40) during the World Series championship season of 1985.

Dyson's steal made him 30-for-35. Escobar is 32-for-37.
