Kris Benson made his 2010 debut with the AAA Reno Aces, and threw five solid innings against Salt Lake City. Benson's final line was 5 IP, 2 R (0 ER), 4H, 1 BB, and 5 K.  Benson threw a total of 88 pitches, 57 of which were strikes, with 5 ground ball out and 2 fly ball outs (one caught by Brandon Allen, who played LF on Monday). Right now, Benson and Kevin Mulvey seem to be the leading candidates to be called up when Arizona needs a 5th starter on Saturday the 17th.  Here are the current numbers for the 5 starting pitchers pitching for Reno:
