Pre-Game Notes: Right-hander Kris Benson (right elbow tendinitis) completed a bullpen session earlier today without experiencing any setbacks, and is scheduled to make a rehab start for Double-A Frisco on Sunday ... Outfielder Josh Hamilton (strained left intercostal muscle) is reportedly feeling better and was scheduled to meet with team physician Dr. Keith Meister again today; manager Ron Washington hopes Hamilton will be able to swing a bat by tomorrow and perhaps be available to play this weekend.
