Altuve legged out an infield single with one out in the eighth and then fell to the ground past first base. He sat on the ground and threw his batting helmet into the ground as he winced in pain.
"We'll have more answers (Tuesday)," manager Dusty Baker said. "He will see the doctor. I can say that."

Altuve said he would have tests done, but wasn't sure exactly what those would be.
"I'm actually feeling better than what I was expecting but we'll see tomorrow," he said.
He was replaced by pinch runner Aledmys Díaz with the Astros leading 7-3.
