The Lehigh Valley IronPigs are gearing up for tonight's season opener at Pawtucket.

The 'Pigs will turn to David Buchanan on the mound tonight in game one of a four-game series. 

Buchanan had a strong spring training, and posted a 3.00 ERA in Lehigh Valley last year.

Buchanan will be opposed by Pawtucket's Allen Webster.

The Paw Sox are the defending International League North Division champions.

The IronPigs, who were besieged by injuries, missed the playoff last season.

The game will start at 7:05pm tonight at Pawtucket's McCoy Stadium.
