The batting average was the lowest of Iannetta’s career.
SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) – Washington State athletic director Bill Moos says quarterback Luke Falk is doing well and might be able to play in Friday’s Apple Cup against Washington. Falk appeared to suffer a head injury and was carried off the field during No. 20 Washington State’s victory over Colorado on Saturday. Coach Mike Leach refuses to discuss injuries, so the extent of Falk’s injury is not clear.
