Wells gave up seven runs on ten hits in his outing. On the mound are manager Terry Francona and catcher Jason Varitek.

"You name it, I just didn’t have it. Everything I threw up there they put a good swing at it… We all have bad nights and I started off with a bad night… The thing to do is just try to keep the team in the ballgame, it worked for two innings then the wheels came off.... I thought they were saying ‘Boomer’ (when fans booed him)… I thought that’s what they were saying, I really did. They were quick to do it, that’s fine." -- 4.12, David Wells after his first loss
