A save is given to a pitcher when the pitcher pitches to three or more batters or that are on base when he come to the mound ... NOTE that is the pitchers team is up by more then three runs no save can be recorded till a run scores ( the batter that is " on deck " counts as a batter faced )

Are ncaa baseball rules the same as major league rules?

The basic gameplay rules are the same, but I'm sure there are certain managerial and coach rules that are different. I know that many little league coaches are not allowed to walk to the pitcher's mound. They have to stop at the foul line. I would assume there are slight changes in rules to NCAA as well, but nothing that would change the basic gameplay.
