Jose Altuve was in the lineup for the Houston Astros on Monday after giving the club a scare because his special Mother's Day shoes were too snug.

Altuve went back to his normal shoes and homered against the Miami Marlins.

The infielder began limping enough in the ninth inning of Sunday night's game at the New York Yankees that A.J. Hinch replaced him with a pinch runner.

"He looked uncomfortable with his lower half -- ankle, calf, hamstring," Hinch said. "It turned out to be his pink shoes. They were a little too tight. It was making his foot fall asleep. When he came to the bench he was sort of dumbfounded as to why I took him out."
