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.
