Pitcher can pitch 6 innings in one game and then pitch 1 inning in the next game either the same day or the day after. Cal Ripken rules allow a rolling 6 innings.

Yes, a pitcher can pitch as many games as necessary, even if they are consecutive. Remember, starting pitchers aren't the only ones who pitch.

Relief pitchers must be the pitcher of record when the winning team takes the lead, and never relinquishes the lead, to be the winning pitcher.
