CANTON, Mo. - A promising season for the Mount Mercy softball team  keeps heading in the wrong direction.

The Mustangs were swept by Culver-Stockton in a pair of tight  ballgames Wednesday, 3-2 and 5-4, in a Heart of America Conference  doubleheader.

Mount Mercy has lost seven straight games and 11 of their last 13,  dropping its records to 20-18 overall and 13-13 in the conference.  Culver-Stockton raised its marks to 24-15 overall and 18-8 in the  league.

Tawny Menster went 5-for-5 with two RBIs for Mount Mercy in the  doubleheader. She was 2-for-2 in the opener and 3-for-3 with two  doubles and a sacrifice fly in the nightcap. Emily Oler hit a home run  and drove in two runs in the 5-4 loss.

Menster (8-2) pitched a complete game in the 3-2 loss in the opener.  Culver-Stockton scored in the bottom of the seventh to snap a 2-2 tie  and collect a walk-off victory.
