Not at all. 1. save rule (n) the Baseball rule that credits a relief pitcher with a save if he comes into a game with his team ahead and completes the game with his team winning, and meets one of the following conditions: a) enters the game with a lead of no more than three runs and pitches for at least one inning, or b) enters the game with the potential tying runner on base, at bat, or on deck, or c) pitches for at least three innings

Absolutely not. A pitcher cannot create his own save situation; if it's not a save situation when he enters, he's not getting a save, no matter what he does. If he's pulled for another reliever, that second reliever could get a save.

What does it take for a relief pitcher to get the win for the starting pitcher?

If a relief pitcher enters the game with the score tied or his team behind and leaves or ends the game with the lead and his team wins, HE (the relief pitcher) gets the win rather than the starting pitcher. He can also get the win if he enters the game with more than one runner on base and the other team takes the lead based on those runners scoring (the runners already on base are charged to the previous pitcher) as long as he leaves or ends with the lead and his team wins.If the relief pitcher enters the game with his team ahead and the other team never ties the score or gets ahead, then the win goes to the starting pitcher. The relief pitcher is credited with a "save" if he finishes the game without giving up the lead.Also - the starting pitcher has to go 5 innings to get credited with the win.
