Kim's softball team is playing in the championship game. They are losing by a score of 17 to 6. There are 4 innings to go. Kim wants to know how many runs her team needs per inning to win the game if the other team does not score. (Each run is worth 1 point.) Let r represent the number of runs per inning.

Find the minimum whole number of runs needed per inning for Kim's team to win the big game.
