Something isn't right and missed by the alignment shop. Hard to say exactly what the issue is from where I sit.

Are you sure it isn't just torque steer? If the Escape is front wheel drive and it only happens when you accelerate fast, it may be normal for the car. Since there is only one drive wheel out front the car will tend to pull in the direction of the side that holds the transaxel. At slower engine speeds, this is not very noticable but the harder you push the acceleration, the more pull is exherted on that one drive wheel.
