No, not unless the relief pitcher relinquishes his teams lead. Relief pitchers often enter games with runners on base. On occasion, some of those runners score. Those inherited runners scoring are charged to the prior pitcher(s) who allowed them to get on base. If the reliever holds the lead, even if some runners score, the reliever gets a save if he finishes the game. Oddly, a reliever can enter the game with a lead, with inherited runners on base, relinquish the lead (the other team ties the game or takes a lead), get a blown save and then win the game. If he relinquishes the lead and then in the other half of the inning or the next inning his team regains the lead or wins and he is the pitcher of record, he gets both a blown save and a victory. Rewarding ineptitude......

When a pitcher allows 5 runs in first inning and then a Relief pitcher comes in and allows 7 more runs to end game 12 to 5 Who gets the loss?

That would depend on when those five runs were scored for the pitcher's team. If the team was always behind in the game, the first pitcher would get the loss. However, if the pitcher's team made the score 5-5 before the relief pitcher gave up the seven runs, then the relief pitcher would get the loss.

What is the least number of pitches a pitcher can throw and still be declared the winner of record in a major league ballgame?

He can throw any amount of pitches. This can range from 1-1000 (obviously wont happen). However, as long as he finishes 5 innings with the lead, and no following pitcher allows the other team to tie or score more than this amount of runs, he will receive the win. Keep in mind, he can be winning 20-0 and leave after the sixth inning. If his bullpen were to blow the lead, even a tie, he would not get the win, regardless of whether or not they won. If he leaves in the middle of an inning, with runners on base, those runs are charged to him. So even if he leaves with the lead, if the runners he left on tie or score more runs than his team, they are charged to him and he could be charged with the loss.' Hope this helped! -Dan

How is a loss determined for a pitcher?

The pitcher who allowed the runner to reach base that scored the run that put the opponent team ahead for the rest of the game is tagged with the loss. Once a pitcher's team reties the game, he's "off the hook" for the loss unless he once again allows the lead run that holds up for the rest of the game. An important distinction is that the pitcher who put the runner on base gets the loss, rather than the pitcher who allows the hit that scores the run.
