If anyone's doubtful, the rule does exist that kept Tim Corcoran from being Sunday's winner, despite being the pitcher of record when the Biscuits scored in the 10th to win at Jacksonville -- 10.17 (c).
I threw it out once for a high school game I covered to the benefit of a pitcher that later played in the big leagues. I gift-wrapped a win for Eric DuBose about 12 years ago when Patrician beat somebody 27-12 in a tournament in Meridian, Miss. The pitcher of record allowed like seven runs in 1 1/3 innings and gave way to DuBose, who was solid.
Poor, poor, Chris Mason. He finishes the season 15-4 after tonight's five-inning, two-run no-decision. Mason had seven starts where he worked at least five innings and allowed two runs or less and three other quality starts that were no-decisions.
