This paper investigates the pinning synchronization of two general complex dynamical networks with lag. The coupling configuration matrices in the two networks are not need to be symmetric or irreducible. Several convenient and useful criteria for lag synchronization are obtained based on the lemma of Schur complement and the Lyapunov stability theory. Especially, the minimum number of controllers in pinning control can be easily obtained. At last, numerical simulations are provided to verify the effectiveness of the criteria
