Chatham, MA — The Kettleers traveled down Cape to take on the Chatham Anglers for the second time in two days. Behind a balanced attack at the plate and a phenomenal pitching performance by Isaiah Coupet (Ohio State), the Ketts took home the win at Veterans Field.
Coupet returns to the Kettleers after making four appearances in the 2022 season. The left-hander went 2-0 last summer with an ERA of .87 while in Cotuit.
“Feels pretty good, try and go out there and execute my job, give my team a chance to win, and be successful so far,” said Coupet on his summer ball success.
After his 2022 season in Cotuit, the Ohio State product returned to Columbus to begin his senior season. He appeared in eleven games for the Buckeyes, making ten starts boasting a record of 4-3. In fifty innings, he struck out seventy-two hitters, holding an ERA of 3.55.
In seven games this season the lefty has made two starts for the Ketts, earning an ERA of 2.25. In his final appearance, he struck out four batters and allowed only two hits in three and a third innings.
Coupet will now head to the MLB draft combine which goes from June 20th to the 25th and is held at Chase Field, the home of the Arizona Diamondbacks. The combine is for the top three hundred draft-eligible players to showcase their talents in front of scouts.
“I'm most excited for the weather and meeting the teams. It’d be a nice experience,” said Coupet.
