Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Rub hens with 1 Tbsp. of the olive oil. Lightly season hens with salt and pepper. Place 1 lemon wedge and 1 sprig of rosemary in cavity of each hen. Arrange in a large heavy roasting pan, arrange garlic cloves around hens. Roast in preheated oven for 25 minutes.
Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F. In mixing bowl, whisk together wine, chicken broth and remaining 2 Tbsp. of oil, pour over hens. Continue roasting for abut 25 minutes longer, or until hens are golden brown and juices run clear. Baste with pan juices every 10 minutes.
Transfer hens to a platter, pouring cavity juices and garlic into roasting pan. Tent hens with aluminum foil to keep warm. Transfer pan juices and garlic cloves to a medium saucepan and boil until liquids reduce to a sauce consistency, about 6 minutes.
