If score remains the same but a different pitcher for the home team starts the suspended game. The Home team pitcher pitched the first 4 innings plus the 1st batter in fifth inning.

Mike, the starting pitcher in a nine inning game must complete 5 innings to get a win, his team must be ahead when he leaves the game and must remain in the lead for the entire game.
