If a starter doesn't go five innings, it is in the hands of the official scorer - provided there isn't a tie that is later broken of course.
But if a team goes up 5-0, pitcher gets hurt and leaves in the 3rd, it is the official scorer's call. They usually give it to the guy who pitches the most innings, generally the guy who immediately relieves the starter.
