Candelario went 1-for-3 with two walks and a three-run home run in Saturday's 9-8 loss to the Royals.

He took Carlos Hernandez deep in the third inning, helping stake the Tigers to a 5-0 lead that Casey Mize and the bullpen couldn't make stick. Candelario hasn't had the breakout some people anticipated after his strong 2020 performance, but he may be finding that form again -- he's hit safely in seven straight games, batting .375 (9-for-24) with two of his seven homers on the year.
