  2. He comes into the game with the winning run on deck. This must be either at the plate or on the bases and records an out.

If a relief pitcher enters the game with a three-run advantage or less and hands the ball over to the next pitcher with the lead intact, they are given a hold. If you had to, you could easily pound out a bunch of them by bringing in a relief pitcher for every out you get while still holding a one-to-three-run lead. Please bear in mind that if you’re losing, else the gap is more than three runs, or even if the pitcher sticks in and winds up with a save instead, you won’t get a hold.
