Question About Scoring a Game



This question popped into my head while watching the Celebrity and Legends Softball Game last night.

Can a pitcher get a win and a save in the same game?

Let's say Jered Weaver starts a game and pitches the first 7 innings of a game. During those 7 innings, the Angels take a 3 - 0 lead. In the 8th inning the opposing team has 3 left handed hitters that will not get pinch hit for. Scioscia brings in Fuentes to face them. But Weaver has pitched so well, he puts Weaver out in Left Field for the 8th inning. Fuentes get throught the 8th inning 1, 2, 3. Scioscia then reinserts Weaver back as pitcher for the 9th inning, which he gets through and seals the win for the Angels.

 

I know Weaver is allowed to pitch again as long as he doen't leave the game. I remember Davey Johnson doing this with the Mets in '86 against the Astros with Roger McDowell and Jesse Orosco during the NLCS.

 

Does he get credit for both the win and the save? Or only for the win.
