Hernandez receives award

Following Sunday’s game at Cle, Reds C Ramon Hernandez was voted by members of the media the coveted Ohio Cup trophy, presented by The Ohio Lottery, as the Most Outstanding Player of this year’s interleague series between the Reds and Indians. In 5g vs Cle Hernandez went 9-for-19 (.474) with a double, triple, homer and 5rbi. OF Jonny Gomes (6g, 7-23, .304, 1hr, 4rbi) and LHP Arthur Rhodes (4g, 4ip, 1h, 0r, 0bb, 3k) also received votes. Reds OF Adam Dunn won the 2008 award (.300, 5hr, 10rbi).

Hernandez received his award prior to this evening’s game vs StL from Reds GM Walt Jocketty.



Hernandez was not available for the pre-game ceremony, as he was warming up RHP Homer Bailey in the bullpen.  He took this photo prior to taking the field.

Reds director of media relations Rob Butcher couldn’t resist another photo opportunity with the coveted award.  Last year Rob posed with Adam Dunn, the 2008 award winner.  See here: 2008 Ohio Cup.
