    EVANSVILLE — Dylan Farmer no-hit the Hoosier Express for 5 2⁄3 innings as Evansville Pate beat the Express 9-3 in Senior Legion baseball Thursday.

    Farmer was a strong left-hander with good control, but Hoosier Express Coach Jay Burch felt his team helped Farmer by swinging at several pitches that would not have been strikes.

    “We expanded his strike zone,” said Burch. “He’s a good pitcher, but we beat him earlier in the season.”

    TELL CITY—Butler University’s strong pharmacy program has netted the school a strong swimmer.
