Manager Ron Washington pulled him because he was unhappy with the effort Andrus made on an errant throw in the eighth inning.
"I felt like I did what I needed to do, and [tonight] he is in the lineup," Washington said. "He knows I care about him. When I take these actions, it's because I'm trying to help him. I want him to play the way he can play all the time. I can live with mistakes. It's part of baseball."
Andrus was his usual smiling self in the clubhouse before Tuesday's game.
"Ron and I are good," Andrus said. "He is always going to be that way. He sees me taking things for granted, he's going to call me on it and talk to me. I take it as a lesson, and hopefully it won't happen again."
