Tied 5-5 going into the sixth inning, Gladstone scored three runs in the bottom of the sixth on its way to an 8-6 win over Astoria in a nonleague baseball game Thursday at Gladstone.

Astoria’s Burke Matthews had a double in the top of the seventh for a run, but the Gladiators were able to record the final out with two Fishermen on base.

Will Reed started and pitched a solid four-and-a-third innings for Astoria.

The Fishermen return to action Friday at home (5 p.m., Tapiola Park) against North Marion.
