Seems like it should be a scorekeeper’s choice if a starter goes less than five. It shouldn’t automatically disqualify him.

At the same time he can lose the game if he gives up a lead off home run and has to be pulled for an injury, and a relief pitcher can get the win for pitching 1/3 of an inning at any part of the game.

Not an entirely relevant comment, but seeing about Cole not going 5 innings made me think of that.
