Clemens, Snider Named Weekly Honorees

Duncan Snider Pitcher
MOORHEAD, Minn. — Cleburne Railroaders infielder Kacy Clemens and former Lake Country DockHounds starter Duncan Snider have been named the American Association’s Pointstreak Batter and Pitcher of the Week for the week ending July 3, the league announced Monday.
Clemens has wasted no time to contribute since joining the Railroaders’ roster on June 21, and he continued his hot streak this week. His .483 batting average ranked third-best in the Association, and his 1.387 OPS ranked second. He finished off his week with a 2-for-4 outing vs. Sioux Falls on July 3, including his third home run of the season.
Clemens started his 2022 campaign with the Atlantic League’s Staten Island FerryHawks before joining the Railroaders. He spent 2021 in the AAPB with the Kane County Cougars, posting a .278 batting average and .826 OPS with 12 home runs. An eighth-round draft pick by Toronto in 2017 out of the University of Texas, Clemens is the son of seven-time Cy Young Award winner Roger Clemens.
Snider earned his honor with an incredible 16-strikeout performance in the DockHounds’ win over Milwaukee on June 29. Allowing just three hits and one walk over 8 innings of work, the right-hander came one strikeout shy of the American Association record. A few days after the performance, Snider’s contract was transferred to the San Diego Padres organization, making him the first DockHound ever to sign an affiliated contract.
2022 is Snider’s second professional season. He made his pro debut with the Tucson Saguaros in the Pecos League in 2021, before making his final three starts for the Houston Apollos, then a travel team in the AAPB. He pitched collegiately at Upper Iowa University from 2019 to 2021 and Marshalltown Community College in 2017 and 2018.
