No. Once a player is removed from the game, they cannot re-enter that game.
A no decision is given to a starting pitcher who does not get credit for either a win or a loss for that game. A starting pitcher may come out for a relief pitcher with the score tied. Only the pitchers in the game when the final go-ahead run is scored get credit for a win or loss.
When a starting pitcher pitches a game from start to finish he is credited a complete game.
The winning pitcher is determined by the official scorer, if the starting pitcher's team is in the lead and never gives up the lead for the remainder of the game. If not, the winning pitcher is the pitcher of record when his team takes and keeps the lead. To be the "winning pitcher", the starting pitcher must pitch five complete innings in a game that is scheduled for six or more innings.
MLB teams have a five man starting rotation. That means the starting pitcher will pitch a game and not pitch for the next four games.
The starting pitcher.
