Generally, the pitcher who last pitched for the winning team right before the winning team took the lead for good, except that the starting pitcher cannot get credited for a win unless he pitches at least 5 innings (and his team takes the lead for good).

How does rain or snow affect the game of baseball?

If the umpire believes the game can be played safely and well the game will continue despite the rain or snow. As soon as this is not the case, the game will be delayed. Usually if the umpire expects the delay to be significantly more than an hour, the game will be stopped. The game is considered an official game if it is stopped after 5 or more innings of play. If the home team is winning after four and a half innings, it is also official. Whoever was winning after the last complete inning is declared the winner. If the game is tied, the game will usually be resumed at a later date from the point where it was stopped. If the game is stopped after fewer than five innings, it is replayed from the start at a later date. Occasionally a rained-out game is not made up, if it has no bearing on the final playoff picture.
