What sport does top of the fifth belong to?

The term "top of the fifth" belongs to the sport of Baseball. A professional regulation game of baseball has nine innings. Each inning has a top and bottom. In each half of the inning, two different teams have a chance to score by batting. So if the Chicago Cubs and the St. Louis Cardinals were playing, and the Cardinals were "at bat" in the "top of the fifth," St. Louis would be the team batting at that time. When 3 strikes have occurred, the inning proceeds to the "bottom of the fifth" and the Cubs would be at bat.

What does top of the fifth mean?

With respects to the sport of baseball (which I believe is the root of your question), the term "top of the fifth" simply refers to the first half of the fifth inning during which the visiting team has the opportunity to bat. After the visiting team cycles through their allotted three outs, the inning enters the bottom of the inning. Each inning has both a "top" and "bottom" half. The actual term "top" or "bottom" of an inning stems from the placement of the score on either the top or bottom section of a scoreboard or scorecard.
