Brendan Donovan hit a two-run homer and an RBI single to propel the St. Louis Cardinals to a 6-5 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Thursday in Birmingham, Ala., as Major League Baseball paid tribute to the Negro Leagues.

The contest, played at historic Rickwood Field, wound up serving as a memorial for Giants legend Willie Mays. The Alabama native died Tuesday at age 93.

Donovan finished with three hits, Nolan Gorman drove in two runs and Alec Burleson had two hits and three runs for the Cardinals, who won for the sixth time in nine games.

Heliot Ramos hit a three-run homer for the Giants, who lost their third consecutive game.
