TORONTO — A big day by the bottom of Texas’ batting order helped the Rangers overcome an injury to third baseman Adrian Beltre in the start of their postseason play.
Robinson Chirinos hit a two-run homer against David Price, Rougned Odor added a solo shot and the Rangers beat the Blue Jays 5-3 Thursday in their AL Division Series opener as postseason baseball returned to Toronto for the first time in 22 years.
Beltre came in the third with a strained muscle in his lower back and Toronto’s Josh Donaldson in the fifth after he was kneed in the head while sliding in an attempt to break up a double play.
An MRI exam confirmed Beltre had a strained back but no structural damage, general manager Jon Daniels said.
Texas will have Joey Gallo and Ed Lucas travel from its Arizona Fall League team in case Beltre needs to be removed from the roster, a decision that also would rule Beltre out of the AL Championship Series.
Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista hit a solo homer in the sixth, then left with a sore right hamstring after popping out in the eighth and was replaced in right by Dalton Pompey.
Delino DeShields and Beltre hit RBI singles to give Texas a 2-0 lead in the third.
Beltre, injured when sliding into second base as Prince Fielder hit into an inning-ending double play in the first, had difficulty running and was replaced by rookie Hanser Alberto in the bottom of third.
The NBA is investigating the incident between Memphis Grizzlies forward Matt Barnes and New York Knicks head coach and former teammate Derek Fisher, a situation Barnes said is “personal matter” involving someone who was a good friend at one point.
“Life happens, and being a professional athlete, you have to be able to maneuver and separate your personal life from your professional life,” Barnes said Thursday after the Grizzlies’ morning shootaround in Memphis, noting the league’s investigation of the incident in California.
Sources said the incident occurred Saturday while Fisher was attending a gathering at the home of Barnes’ estranged wife, Gloria Govan.
The Pelicans open their regular season against the Warriors at Oracle Arena on Oct.
On Wednesday, head coach Jim Tomsula said Staley and left guard Alex Boone (shoulder, ankle) would return to practice today after missing that day’s session.
Staley didn’t miss a snap in Sunday’s 17-3 loss to the Packers, but he was briefly facedown on the sideline in the first half while a trainer stretched his left leg.
Kaepernick ranks 32nd in the NFL in passer rating (67.7), partly because of the 49ers are on pace to allow a franchise-record 56 sacks.
Another former Pro Bowler, outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks, won’t play Sunday after his sister recently died of lupus, his agent, Greg Williams, told The Chronicle.
In other injury news, four players besides Boone were limited in practice: TE Vernon Davis (knee), S L.
