I attempted this at least 10 times with different variables tonight before finally getting the achievement (my final to get 1000/1000), so I feel the need to clarify somewhat on the details.

I believe what the achievement description is trying to say by "Change pitchers before the final inning and win the game" is that you not only need to swap your pitcher out, but you also need to be in the lead before the final inning. I swapped pitchers several times, and then in the final inning made the winning score... with no luck.

So if you are really stuck on this, here are my exact details on how I got it;

5 inning game
2 controllers
P1 (main account) home team (all-stars)
P2 (guest) away team (doesn't matter)

Basically do innings 1-3 as a no-hitter. Strike out 3 batters, and then grab the other controller and do it again. And again. You get the idea.

In the top of the 4th, pitch to P2 and have P2 bunt. Then have P2 run around for a home run (0-1). Then swap out P1 pitchers (Assign Positions in the pause menu). It doesn't really matter who, just make sure your pitcher is a different character. Strike out the rest of the P2 team still in the top of the 4th.

Bottom of the 4th, you are up (P1), so score twice (2-1) to take the lead. Now use the P2 team to strike everyone else out on P1 team to close out the inning with you (P1) in the lead.

Top of the 5th will start, once again, strike everyone out on P2's team. There will be no need for you to get an at bat (no bottom of the 5th), so as soon as you strike out 3 in the top of the 5th, game over. Achievement unlocked.
