CHICAGO -- A quick look at the Chicago Cubs' 10-4 loss to the New York Yankees in the series finale at Wrigley Field Sunday night.

The good: Alfonso Soriano hit a three-run home run to give the Cubs a lead early on.

The bad: Randy Wells couldn't hold that lead, as he allowed four runs on five hits and four walks in his five innings. Starlin Castro made a costly mistake as he pulled his foot off the second-base bag too early and cost the Cubs an out in an inning that the Yankees scored two runs. The Cubs bullpen wasn't up to the challenge, as the Yankees scored six times in the last two innings.

Outside the box: The Cubs drew 41,828 fans on Sunday, bringing the total weekend attendance to 126,283, a Wrigley Field record for a three-game set.

Up next: Carlos Zambrano (5-4, 4.59) takes on Gavin Floyd (6-6, 3.94) as the Cubs head to the South Side to take on the White Sox at U.S Cellular Field at 7:10 CT.
