Donovan’s Grand Slam beat Cardinals 5-4 at Padres

SAN DIEGO (AP) — Lars Knutbar provided St. Louis the first run in four games with a solo homer, and then rookie Brendan Donovan gave the NL Central leaders an even bigger lift.

Donovan hit his first career Grand Slam in the seventh inning, leading Albert Pujols and the Cardinals to a 5-4 win against the San Diego Padres on Thursday, breaking a three-game losing streak.

Pujols was among the first to greet Donovan in the dugout.

“It was one of the biggest swings for me this year, so it was good for me,” Donovan said.
