But when Jones (23) and compatriot Nat Sciver (first-ball duck) succumbed in successive deliveries to leggie Georgia Wareham (2-13), the Gades looked home before Lanning caught fire.
She thumped three fours and two towering sixes off her last eight balls, the last one sailing over the mid-wicket boundary with two runs required for victory.
"I'm still not sure what really happened to be honest," a stunned Lanning said after the match.
"I was playing some shots that I don't normally play.
"But when you need 10 an over, you've got to go out there and swing hard."
The Renegades were in the box seat for much of the evening after in-form Danni Wyatt whacked 74 not out from 51 balls to steer them to 1-134 from 15 rain-reduced overs.
The visitors raced to 45 off the first five when the first shower break came before Sophie Molineux (20) fell to a magnificent diving, outfield catch from Nicole Bolton.
English pair Wyatt and Tammy Beaumont combined for a quickfire unconquered 85 to give the Renegades the upper hand, only to be thwarted by Lanning.
