CINCINNATI - Bronson Arroyo won two of three honors awarded to Cincinnati Reds players Thursday.
In a vote by the Cincinnati chapter of the Baseball Writers Association of America, Arroyo won the Johnny Vander Meer Pitcher of the Year Award, as well as the Joe Nuxhall Good Guy Award.
Infielder Rich Aurilia took the Ernie Lombardi Award as the Reds' Most Valuable Player.
Arroyo edged last year's winner, Aaron Harang, with 91/2 of 14 votes for Pitcher of the Year. The right-hander led the staff with 35 starts and 2402/3 innings pitched. He finished with a 14-11 record and 3.29 ERA, with 184 strikeouts to 64 walks.
Nine players got at least one vote for being a "Good Guy" with the writers. Arroyo won with three votes, one more than Adam Dunn, Todd Coffey and Kent Mercker.
Aurilia, who played all four infield positions, drew eight votes for MVP, followed by Arroyo and Dunn with two each.
Over 122 games, Aurilia hit .300 with 23 homers and 70 RBI. He also had 25 doubles, a .349 on-base percentage and .518 slugging percentage.
Aurilia declined the Reds' post-season offer of salary arbitration and last month signed a free-agent contract with the San Francisco Giants.
Ken Griffey Jr. won the Lombardi and Nuxhall awards last year.
