How do you qualify for a Hold? (CBS league)

I've never been clear on what the requirements are for getting a hold. Is it basically the same as a save -- three runs or less, and you don't give up the lead or tie run? Do you have to pitch to any specific number of batters, or is getting 1 out enough?

The "Hold":
The hold is not an official statistic, but it was created as a way to credit middle relief pitchers for a job well done. Starting pitchers get wins, and closers -- the relief pitchers who come in at the end of the game -- get saves, but the guys who pitch in between the two rarely get either statistic. So what's the most important thing one of these middle relievers can do? "Hold" a lead. If a reliever comes into a game to protect a lead, gets at least one out and leaves without giving up that lead, he gets a hold. But you can't get a save and a hold at the same time.
