The Pittsburgh Pirates dropped game one of their opening series against the Philadelphia Phillies, as they'll try to plate some runs against Cliff Lee in game two of the series.

The Pittsburgh Pirates dropped their opening day game to the Philadelphia Phillies 1-0 in a pitching duel that saw Roy Halladay gave up just two hits through eight innings of work. The Bucs won't get a break in the pitching matchup on Saturday, as the Phillies will trot out Cliff Lee while the Pirates will start Jeff Karstens.

The Bucs got a nice showing from Erik Bedard on opening day, but they just couldn't get much offense going against the Phillies pitching. Karstens will try to hold down a Phillies lineup that is lacking some power without Ryan Howard and Chase Utley, but the Pirates will need to plate some runs of their own, which they failed to do in the first game of the series.

Starting Pitchers:

Philadelphia: Lee (0-0, 0.00 ERA)
Pittsburgh: Karstens (0-0, 0.00 ERA

Game Time: 7:05 PM ET, April 7, 2012
