How many innings to get the W?

How many innings do I need to get a win in a regular 7 inning high school game. I think its 4.
4 out of 7 is 57% of the game.
5 out of 9 is 55% of the game.

Would it be 4 or 5. Im confused :shock:

If you are talking about mercy, it is 4.

You’re making it a lot more complicated than necessary. A starting pitcher in a 7 inning game needs a minimum of 4 innings. If it’s a shortened game, a starter needs at least 3 consecutive innings. A reliever is much different. They can get a win with only 1/3 of an inning.
