Lackey in the dark at Rancho

John Lackey’s rehab start at Rancho Cucamonga is in a holding pattern after a bank of lights went out at the Quakes’ home park. Lackey had given up just one hit through three innings, needing just five pitches to get out of the third. The right-hander was last seen throwing warmup pitches during the delay. No word yet if those will count toward his designated pitch total.

UPDATE: Lackey finished his outing during a simulated game while one bank of lights was out. No word on if Quakes batters came to the plate or the Quakes’ opponents took their cuts. “Officially,” Lackey’s line was: three innings, one run, one hit, two strikeouts and a walk.

SECOND EDIT: Lackey threw 34 pitches in the game before the power outage and 26 more in simulated game in the bullpen where a batter stood at the plate but didn’t swing.
