Yes.

4.10(c) If a game is called, it is a regulation game -

(1) if four [JUNIOR/SENIOR/BIG LEAGUE: five] innings have been completed;

(2) if the home team has scored more runs in three or three and a fraction half innings [JUNIOR/SENIOR/BIG LEAGUE: four or four and a fraction half innings] than the visiting team has scored in four [JUNIOR/SENIOR/BIG LEAGUE: five] completed half innings;

(3) it the home team scores one or more runs in its half of the fourth [JUNIOR/SENIOR/BIG LEAGUE: fifth] inning to tie the score.
