Is it true that Babe Ruth was ejected from a game before the first batter and the pitcher who replaced him pitched a no-hitter?

Yes, June 23, 1917. Babe Ruth pitched zero innings and Ernie Shore came in and got the combined no hitter. (Weird huh) Boston beat Washington 4-0.

it was even weirder than that. Ruth walked the first batter and was ejected for arguing about it. Ernie Shore came on in relief, picked the runner off first, and retired the next 26 guys in a row. But he doesn't get credit for a perfect game because a runner reached base, even though he didn't allow it.

If he has pitched at least 5 innings, he can qualify for the win.

Yes, there is no restriction on changing pitchers during an at bat, unless the current pitcher just entered the game and the batter is the first batter he faces. The pitcher must face at least one batter before he can be replaced, unless the pitcher is injured, or ejected from the game.

IP stands for Innings Pitched. It is a pitching statistics that records the amount of innings the pitcher pitched. It can be divided into thirds by the outs that were recorded while the pitcher was still on the mound. For example: Its the 5th inning and there are 2 outs. The pitcher needs to be taken out of the game and is replaced with another pitcher. The number of innings pitched for this game would be 4 2/3. The relief pitcher would then pitch 2 1/3. This would add up to the complete 7 inning game.
