The St. Maria Goretti baseball team scored five runs in the bottom of the sixth inning and hung on for a 9-6 win over Smithsburg on Wednesday night at Municipal Stadium. It was the fifth win in a row for the Gaels (12-8). "We didn't play our best baseball, but we found a way to win," Goretti coach John Bowen said. "That's the sign of a good team.
