Who gets the win…?
Pete asked: If a pitcher leaves the game after the fourth inning with a 12-0 lead and each of the next five innings is pitched by 5 different pitchers who give up 2 runs each but the team is still wins 12-10, who gets the win?
My guess is the pitcher who pitches the fifth inning.
Rick answered: Pete, thank you for your question.
In the scenario you created, it would be the first reliever, as they all essentially performed at the same level, and the game lead never changed hands.
Yours in baseball,
