Phillies Vs. Pirates Final Score: Philly Falls In Extras

Cliff Lee did his part, tossing six sensational innings for the Phillies on Saturday night, but the Pirates were able to squeeze past Philadelphia 2-1 in ten innings.

Lee passed the ball off to his bullpen in a 1-1 ballgame, and they were able to get the job done for three and two thirds innings before Alex Presley scored on a Michael McKenry infield single off of Joel Blanton in the tenth.

Shane Victorino and Placido Polanco each collected a pair of hits for the Phillies, but they weren't able to solve Jeff Karstens, who threw six innings of worthwhile stuff in his first start of the season.

The loss drops Philadelphia to 1-1 in the early part of the 2012 season, and they'll square off with Pittsburgh once more on Sunday afternoon, with Vance Worley scheduled to take the mound.
