If the game is tied at the end of the 9th inning, it continues to the 10th inning, and further if necessary, until there is a winner. That's one of the great things about's timeless.

The game just continues until someone scores. It's called extra innings and happens whenever there is a tie after 9 innings.

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.

If the starting pticher leaves the game after 8 innings with the score tied and the team wins who gets credit for the win?

If a pitcher leaves a tie game after finishing the 8th inning he cannot get the loss. If his team takes the lead before another pitcher on his team throws a pitch he could be credited with the win. For example, if a pitcher finishes the bottom of the 8th with a tie score and his team takes the lead in the top of the 9th and they keep the lead in the bottom of the ninth, he gets the win. If his replacement throws a pitch in the bottom of the 9th with the score still tied, the pitcher that left after the 8th inning gets a "no decision". If his team takes the lead in the top of the ninth, but they cannot hold the lead in the bottom of the ninth (another tie or loss) the pitcher that finished the 8th inning gets a "no decision". The final win will go to the "pitcher of record" when the winning run is finally scored (even if he only faced the last batter of the inning before the winning run is scored). The pitcher that gives up the winning run gets the loss.

What is the top of the inning in baseball?

the top of the inning is the first three outs in an inning. an inning has a total of six outs, three outs for each team. each team takes as many at-bats as they can get before they get three outs in their half of the inning. then the other team gets at-bats until they get three outs. after that, the inning is over. ============================================ The home team gets "home field advantage." In baseball, the visiting team bats first and the home team bats last. The advantage to batting last is that the visiting team does not get another chance to take the lead if the home team is ahead after the visiting team has batted in the ninth inning, or if the home team takes the lead during its turn at bat in the ninth inning. The home team always gets the last chance to tie or win the game in the ninth inning or extra innings. The "top" of the inning refers to the visiting team being at bat. The "bottom" of the inning refers to the home team being at bat.
