Sore Wrist Keeps Valverde Out Of Game

It was a win, but a win with a cloud over it.

Detroit defeated St. Louis 6-3 Tuesday night, but with Phil Coke getting the save, not closer Jose Valverde, who was sitting down in dejection after feeling pain in his right wrist while throwing his last warmup pitch in the bullpen.
