Kyle Hogg claimed career-best figures of seven for 27 as Lancashire picked up where they left off against Essex last week by bowling out LV= County Championship Division Two leaders Northamptonshire for just 62 at Old Trafford on Thursday.
After skittling Essex for a record-low 20 at Chelmsford, Red Rose duo Hogg and Glen Chapple bowled all 29.5 overs as they ripped through Northants on day one of their clash.
The visitors hit back as the wickets continued to tumble, with Lancashire reduced to 121 for eight in reply when bad light forced play to be abandoned with 15.3 overs left in the day.
Also in Division Two, centuries by Matt Pardoe and Moeen Ali put Worcestershire in charge on a bad first day for Glamorgan at New Road.
Mark Wallace's decision to bowl first on winning the toss backfired on the Welshmen as two left handers shared in the home side's first double century partnership in the competition for nearly three years.
Pardoe completed an impressive maiden hundred with 102 from 235 balls, and Moeen cemented his position as the leading scorer in Division Two in making an unbeaten 155 towards a total of 322 for three.
