save rule (n)
the baseball rule that credits a relief pitcher with a save if he comes into a game with his team ahead and completes the game with his team winning, and meets one of the following conditions: a) enters the game with a lead of no more than three runs and pitches for at least one inning, or b) enters the game with the potential tying runner on base, at bat, or on deck, or c) pitches for at least three innings.

Here's a link to a site that gives the definitions for all baseball statistical catagories and rules for calculating them. I find it kind of helpful sometimes:

It doesn't bother me, I was just curious. In case you didn't know, you could have straightened it out. Nothing to worry about. ;-)
