Mack helps Mount Mercy slam Clarke

Michelle Mack belted a grand-slam in the sixth inning Wednesday to  help Mount Mercy top Clarke, 5-2, in the first game of their Heart of  America Conference doubleheader at Busse Field.

The Mustangs took the nightcap, 5-1, on a rainy evening in northeast  Cedar Rapids for the sweep.

The twin-killing lifted Mount Mercy into first place in the North  Division standings with an 8-2 record in the conference. The Mustangs  are 15-7 overall for the campaign.

Mount Mercy trailed, 2-1, in the sixth inning of the opener when Mack  lofted a fly ball over the fence in left field with the bases loaded.  Tawny Menster (6-0) retired Clarke in the top of the seventh to finish  the victory.

Emily Oler belted a solo home run over the fence in center field to  help the Mustangs in Game 2. Madelyn Irwin (4-1) tossed a complete  game for the victory.

Clarke fell to 3-14 overall and 1-11 in the league.
