Phelps, Lochte pick up pace at Indianapolis

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Michael Phelps won the 100 butterfly Thursday night at the Indianapolis Grand Prix after finishing second in the 100 freestyle.

It was a strange night session at the IUPUI Natatorium.

Ryan Lochte, Phelps' biggest rival, failed to qualify for the final heat for both of his events -- the 100 free and the 100 fly. Lochte won both consolation heats with a season-best 49.46 seconds in the 100 free and a career-best 52.32 in the 100 fly.

And despite splitting his trunks at the start of the 100 free, Nathan Adrian still held off the hard-charging Phelps. Adrian finished in 48.62. Phelps was next at 48.74.

Dana Vollmer dominated the women's events, winning both the 100 free and 100 fly.
