I have a High School Fastpitch scoring decision for winning pitcher. We're Home team. Mercy rule is 10 after 5 inn. Scenerio: Starter goes 3 innings and were up 10-0. Reliever comes in Top of 4 gives up 3 runs. Game ends after 5 1/2 score 13-3. Who is the winning pitcher. Both girls pitched 3 innings but starteer didn't go 4 inn. Mercy rule states winning pitcher only has to go 3 inninings if the game ends @ 4 1/2? Anyone know? Thanks for the help.
