93 escort sticks in 5th gear

I have a escort that once you stop while the car is running and it is in 5th gear, it locks up and you can't get it out. You have to shut the car off and restart it, or sometimes you otherwise have to try to rock it a little in 5th gear while the car is running and at the same time try to pull it out of gear. Sometimes that works. Any ideas. Thank you in advance. curt at startsavingnow@msn.com
