In order to record a save under Baseball rules, the following must happen:

The pitcher must be the last to appear in a game won by his team.

The pitcher is not the winning pitcher.

The pitcher enters the game with a lead of no more than three runs, and records at least one out.

He comes in with the potential tying run on base, at bat or on deck.

A pitcher can also record a save by recording at least three effective innings to close out a game, at the discretion of the official scorer.

Consequently, a blown save is when a pitcher enters a game in any of these situations and allows either the tying or go-ahead run to score.

Almost had it - the tying run is on base, on deck, or in the hole. If a team is up by 3 runs and the reliever starts the inning, he can still get the save.

Also the reliever cannot create his own save situation.

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.

Pitcher leaves game relief pitcher enters with two runners on base and one run lead does relief pitcher get win or save?

It will depend on the circumstances. If this happens in the top of the ninth inning, he will get a save if he retires the remaining batters without giving up a run, but if he gives up one run to tie the game, so that the game is tied in the middle of the ninth, he will get a win if his team gets a run in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Can a relief pitcher come into a game in a non-save situation then give up runs to get into a save opportunity?

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.
