Closing individual contracts (not the oldest)

Is it possible to choose which contract will be closed?
I bought 1 contract of ES at 3700 with an idea to close it at 3750.
Later on I see a scalping opportunity so I buy 5 contracts at 3720 with an idea to sell at 3722.
At 3722 there will be 5 contracts closed, but it will close my 1 contract bought at 3700 and 4 contracts at 3720, leaving me with 1 contract at 3722.

Is there a way to close 5 contracts from 3720 and leave the 3700 contract alone?

I hope it makes sense.
Thank you in advance.
