Well in a related question, What if it's the top of the 7th, tie score, 2 outs, man on first and the pitcher gets yanked for a reliever. But the reliever picks off the runner at first without throwing a pitch in the inning. Then in the bottom of the 7th the team takes the lead which holds up for the rest of the game. Who gets the win? I would assume it would be the reliever, but I just wanted to see if anyone knew for sure since the reliever didn't actually throw a pitch in the inning.
