it was even weirder than that. Ruth walked the first batter and was ejected for arguing about it. Ernie Shore came on in relief, picked the runner off first, and retired the next 26 guys in a row. But he doesn't get credit for a perfect game because a runner reached base, even though he didn't allow it.
If he has pitched at least 5 innings, he can qualify for the win.
he would get fined or ejected

Yes, there is no restriction on changing pitchers during an at bat, unless the current pitcher just entered the game and the batter is the first batter he faces. The pitcher must face at least one batter before he can be replaced, unless the pitcher is injured, or ejected from the game.
IP stands for Innings Pitched. It is a pitching statistics that records the amount of innings the pitcher pitched. It can be divided into thirds by the outs that were recorded while the pitcher was still on the mound. For example: Its the 5th inning and there are 2 outs. The pitcher needs to be taken out of the game and is replaced with another pitcher. The number of innings pitched for this game would be 4 2/3. The relief pitcher would then pitch 2 1/3. This would add up to the complete 7 inning game.
As many as he needs. If a pitcher replaces another pitcher whom the manager just pulled, then the incoming pitcher gets a maximum of 8 pitches.
For example, if a pitcher comes in to start the seventh inning, gives up two base hits and is replaced without recording an out, the box score will show he pitched 0 innings. At the bottom of the box score it will have a statement "<name of pitcher> pitched to two batters in the seventh inning'. Sometimes you hear broadcasters refer to it as 'plus'. Say the starter is replaced after giving up a base hit in the seventh inning but before recording any outs. You might hear the broadcaster say "<name of pitcher> went six plus innings today".
yes they can be replaced at any time
