Winning pitcher

In baseball, there are often different types of pitchers used and utlized throughout the game. Each type of pitcher has a role which they are trained to play, and each pitcher has their own pros and cons whilst out on the field.

The winning pitcher is typically the pitcher who was pitching at the time when the winning team took the lead for the final time. As a result, the winning pitcher isn’t always the last pitcher on the field, as a team could have taken the lead in an earlier inning.
