51s’ Snider named PCL Player of the Week

After hitting .538 (14-of-26) over the past week, Las Vegas 51s outfielder Travis Snider was named the Pacific Coast League's Player of the Week on Monday.

The 21-year-old Snider, who spent the early portion of the 2009 season manning left field for the Blue Jays before being sent down, also had 11 runs scored, 7 doubles, 3 homers and 15 RBI in 7 games.

Snider, the 14th overall pick in the 2006 draft, is the fifth 51s player to earn POW honors this season, joining Brett Harper, Jason Lane, Joe Inglett and Kevin Howard.

Snider is hitting .293 with 9 home runs and 30 RBI in 35 games with the 51s.

Pitcher of the Week honors went to Salt Lake's Sean O'Sullivan, who threw the first 9-inning no-hitter in Bees history last Tuesday. He surrendered just one walk and struck out 7 in a 2-0 victory over Sacramento.

The 51s play a double-header with Salt Lake City tonight beginning at 6:05 p.m., which will feature a pair of 7-inning contests. Following an off-day on Tuesday, the 51s play eight straight on the road before beginning an 8-game home stand next Friday.
