Ted Lilly was greeted rudely in his rehabilitation start with Single-A Rancho Cucamonga on Friday. The Dodgers left-hander allowed five runs - all earned - in six innings against the Lake Elsinore Storm.

Lilly's control was good enough to not walk a batter, not good enough to avoid getting tagged for three solo home runs. Two were hit by Kyle Gaedele, who hit five all of last year in the Low-A Midwest League.

Lilly allowed nine hits and struck out five while throwing 77 pitches, one above his target.

A flyball pitcher by trade, Lilly escaped a shaky fifth inning without allowing a run when Quakes right fielder Jon Garcia tracked down a flyball on the warning track with runners on second and third base.

There is no timetable for Lilly's return to the Dodgers. This was his longest outing since he reported to spring training and manager Don Mattingly has indicated only that he wants Lilly to build up his arm strength.

In eight games last year with the Dodgers, Lilly went 5-1 with a 3.14 earned-run average.

He was shut down with left shoulder inflammation in May, made four rehab starts for Rancho Cucamonga, but ultimately had season-ending shoulder surgery in September.
