DENVER (AP) - Arizona right-hander Kris Benson was pulled from
Wednesday's game against the Colorado Rockies after two innings
because of soreness in his pitching shoulder.

Benson allowed four runs and four hits in the abbreviated start, his third of the season for the Rockies. He began the year at Triple-A Reno after signing a minor league free agent deal with the Diamondbacks in March.

The Diamondbacks are Benson's third team in the last three seasons. He missed all of the 2007 season after undergoing rotator cuff surgery and a procedure on his elbow in the spring of that year while with the Baltimore Orioles.

With the Texas Rangers last year, he split time between the rotation and the bullpen in between a stint on the disabled list for right elbow tendinitis.
