The first MLB game played at the ballpark was meant to honor Mays and many other Negro Leaguers, and it took on a more sentimental meaning when Mays, the electrifying center fielder who left an enduring mark on baseball, died Tuesday.

Tributes to Mays continued throughout the week in Birmingham, including a ceremony before Thursday's game.

Plenty of other Negro Leagues greats were honored, including former Black Barons player Bill Greason, who threw out the ceremonial first pitch. The game also featured the first all-Black umpire crew in AL/NL history.

Donovan, who grew up in Alabama, blasted a 1-1 pitch from Giants starter Keaton Winn (3-8) for his seventh home run of the season. He was 3 for 3 with a double in the third inning and an RBI single in the sixth.

“What a special night," Donovan said. "I mean, this is something that we should celebrate. This right here is pretty amazing. And to do it in Alabama, I’ve got some friends and family in the stands, it’s like playing summer ball again.”

Alec Burleson had a pair of singles and Masyn Winn reached twice for the Cardinals (37-37), who stopped a two-game losing streak.

Andre Pallante (3-3) pitched 5 1/3 innings in the win, allowing seven hits and three runs. He walked three and struck out five.

San Francisco's center fielder Heliot Ramos hit a tying three-run shot off Pallante in the third for his 10th home run, but the Cardinals retook the lead on Nolan Gorman's sacrifice fly in the bottom of the inning.

“Any time you play center field for the San Francisco Giants, you think about Willie Mays," Giants manager Bob Melvin said. "We’re down three, then all of a sudden we’re tied up with one swing of the bat. And he’s been doing that for a while now.”

Winn struggled through 2 2/3 innings, allowing five hits and five runs with two strikeouts and a walk. He was replaced in the third by Randy Rodríguez, who gave up a run on a wild pitch against his first batter.

Patrick Bailey had three hits for the Giants, who closed a three-run hole with a two-run sixth. Matt Chapman led off the inning with a double, then came around to score on Wilmer Flores' line drive to center. Jorge Soler then scored on Nick Ahmed's sacrifice fly.

Ryan Helsley got three outs for his 24th save.

“It was fun," Cardinals manager Oliver Marmol said. "The pregame ceremony was incredible. I got emotional. Just knowing where you're standing. Just the overall feel of the tribute to Willie Mays. The impact he had on people that he met, but also people he never met.

"That's when you know you've done it right."

Both teams wore throwback uniforms with Mays' No. 24 on them. Over 23 major league seasons, mostly with the New York/San Francisco Giants but including one in the Negro Leagues, Mays batted .301, hit 660 home runs, totaled 3,293 hits, scored more than 2,000 runs. He was Rookie of the Year in 1951 and a two-time MVP.

“One of a kind type of place to play," Melvin said of Rickwood. "You look around and kind of can feel what transpired here a long time ago and the players that played on the field. It’d be nice to win the game, but pretty cool experience.”

TRAINER'S ROOM

Giants: Recalled SS Tyler Fitzgerald from Triple-A Sacramento as an extra player for the Rickwood game. ... RF Mike Yastrzemski left with a tight left side.

Cardinals: 3B Nolan Arenado did not play after leaving Tuesday's game against the Marlins after being hit in the right elbow by a fastball thrown by reliever Huascar Brazoban.

UP NEXT

RHP Jordan Hicks (4-3, 2.82 ERA) will start for the Giants when the series continues Saturday in St. Louis. Miles Mikolas (5-6, 4.59) will start for the Cardinals.

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Yet another wave of severe storms pummeled a wide swath of the United States and Canada, causing flash floods that required rescues Wednesday in Arkansas, dropping a tornado that blew a B-52 bomber off its base in New York, and stranding drivers in high water around Toronto.

The relentless series of storms has caused deaths or damage from the Plains to New England this week. Hundreds of thousands of people have lost power and air conditioning during days of sweltering heat.

As much as 11 inches (nearly 28 centimeters) of rain fell overnight into Wednesday on parts of Marion County, Arkansas, in the Ozark Mountains, the National Weather Service said.

At least 80 people had to evacuate a nursing home in Yellville, the county seat, and were taken to a community center, said Lacey Kanipe, a spokesperson for Arkansas emergency management. A section of a bridge washed out, and a historic courthouse flooded.

As many as 40 residents had to evacuate their homes in the Marion County city of Flippin, Kanipe said, and there was also a swift-water rescue involving a recreational vehicle in neighboring Baxter County.

There have been “impacts to infrastructure” in the area, said Kanipe, who didn't have details. There were no immediate reports of injuries from the flooding.

Cities across upstate New York declared states of emergency after a storm swept through Tuesday with high winds and spectacular lightning. A confirmed tornado in the city of Rome tipped over vehicles and left streets clogged with tree debris, power poles and electrical transformers.

The winds were fierce enough to knock a tourist attraction, a B-52 bomber, off its pedestal at Griffiss Business and Technology Park. Steeples crumbled and roofs were torn apart at First Presbyterian Church and St. Mary’s Church, both built in the 1800s. St. Mary’s is not an active church and is privately owned.

“These are beautiful old churches. It breaks my heart,” Rome resident Barb Mulvey said on Facebook.

A Rome landmark, a mural of a Revolutionary War figure on horseback, was destroyed, along with the building on which it was painted. All that remained was an image of a horse hoof.

Storm debris hit and killed an 82-year-old man who was outdoors in Canastota in central New York, village administrator Jeremy Ryan said.

Trees fell on houses and cars Tuesday in Keene, New Hampshire, forcing some residents to evacuate. Around Toronto, flooding temporarily closed several major roads and left drivers stranded, the Canadian Press reported.

About 200,000 homes and businesses lacked power Wednesday in northeastern U.S. states, according to PowerOutage.us. The East Coast from Maine to the Carolinas was warned of weather that could feel hotter than 100 degrees (37.8 Celsius) in some places.

A storm helped bring under control a forest fire burning at a military bombing range in New Jersey as it dropped half an inch of rain, the state forest fire service said.

This week's severe weather struck the Chicago area especially hard. The weather service said it confirmed 17 tornadoes hit northern Illinois and northwestern Indiana, including 11 during a single stretch of extraordinary storms Monday night.

Utilities continued to restore power in the Midwest, where more than 100,000 homes and businesses in Illinois and Indiana still didn’t have electricity, according to PowerOutage.us.

Across the U.S., the storms have led to at least five deaths, including the one in New York. Flooding killed an 88-year-old couple who were in their car near Elsah, Illinois, on Tuesday and a 76-year-old passenger in a pickup in Rockford, Illinois, on Sunday. A fallen tree killed a 44-year-old woman in Cedar Lake, Indiana, on Monday.
