Union's McInerney once again voted best player in MLS

For the second straight time, Jack McInerney was voted the MLS Player of the Month.

McInerney narrowly won the award for May, edging out Portland Timbers goalie Donovan Ricketts by one vote (6-5). 

The Union forward scored three times in five May games to raise his season total to nine, and he is currently tied with Montreal striker Marco Di Vaio for the league lead in goals.

The 20-year-old netted the lone goal in the Union's 1-0 road win over Chicago on May 1, and provided the lone score seven days later in a 1-0 home victory over the Fire. McInerney then closed out the month with another goal in a 5-3 defeat to the Impact.

Di Vaio and Red Bulls midfielder Tim Cahill each earned three votes.

May: Jack McInerney (Philadelphia Union)
April: Jack McInerney (Philadelphia Union)
March: Mike Magee (LA Galaxy)
