GLENDALE, ARIZ. (AP) - Ted Lilly has made a low-key spring training debut for the Los Angeles Dodgers, pitching two hitless innings in a minor league game after being knocked out by flu earlier this week.

Lilly threw 27 pitches in Thursday’s game against the Chicago White Sox. He struck out one in front of a small bunch of fans on Chicago’s side of Camelback Ranch.

The left-hander had been scheduled to make his first start on Wednesday against Kansas City, but he was still feeling the effects of the flu bug that has spread through the Dodgers’ clubhouse.

But he was feeling good enough a day later to start for a Dodgers’ squad comprised entirely of minor leaguers, most of whose names Lilly didn’t even know.
