Series at a glance:
Wells solid, but not enough
David Wells held the Yankees to two runs on six hits over 7 1/3 innings, but Boston's bat went cold against New York starter Cory Lidle and it was swept away by the Yankees. Wily Mo Pena hit a solo home run in the eighth inning, but it only halved the Sox deficit.
