FORT MYERS, Fla. — Well John Lackey has the art of getting out of a big jam down so far in spring training.

In his first 10 pitches Saturday against the Rays at JetBlue Park, he walked Ben Zobrist on five pitches, allowed a first-pitch single to Desmond Jennings and hit Matt Joyce on the fourth pitch of the at-bat to load the bases with none out.

Lackey rebounded to strike out Jack Cust swinging on four pitches, one of his two swing-and-miss offerings on the day. Ryan Roberts drove a 1-0 pitch to right field for a sacrifice fly to score Zobrist.

Lackey completed his comeback, getting Sean Rodriguez to fly out to right for the final out.

His line: 1 IP, 1 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 1 K and 1 HBP on 20 pitches, 10 strikes.

His pitch-by-pitch went like this:

Zobrist: BBBLB
Jennings: X (single to left)
Joyce: BFBX(hit by pitch)
Cust: BLLS
Roberts: BX(Sac fly to right)
Rodriguez: SBLX (fly to right)
