A starting pitcher must complete five innings to be considered for the win, if he leaves the game with the lead his team MUST never relinquish the lead, the score can increase, but the lead cannot be forfeited. ie. after 5 innings, it is 2-1 for the home team. The starting pitcher leaves, home team scores two more runs, visitors THEN score two more runs, game ends. Starting pitcher still leaves. Other than that a reliever can get a win even if he pitches just 1/3 of an inning just as long as the lead isn't relinquished. BUT the scorer can give the win to somebody else if the WIN was clearly undeserved. ie. starting pitcher pitches 8 innings, leading with a lead of 9-1, reliever comes in gives up a lot of runs, it is now 10-9 and the reliver stands to get the loss, BUT the home team pulls it off in the 9th to win it 11-10, well, in that case, the scorer MIGHT give the win to the starter.
