In MLB, the team that is losing must have five full innings of at bats for the game to be complete. If the home team is ahead, the game can be called in the bottom of the fifth inning and it would be considered complete since the visiting team, who is losing, has had five full innings of at bats. If the home team is losing, the game can be called in the top of the sixth inning and it would be considered complete since the home team has had five full innings of at bats.
