Because of this, the guy that hit the walk off home run "passed" the runner on the base path and was called out. As a result, the guy that hit the home run was awarded a walk off double.

1959 - pitcher was Harvey Haddix. Batter was Joe Adcock. The runner who didn't round the bases was Hank Aaron.
Way back in the day, that would have been the norm for scoring a walk-off home run -- only the lead runner credited with a run, and the batter with only as many bases as the lead runner would have needed to advance. Don't know when they changed the rules, will need to research, but it would have been well before 1959.

Edit: found it. Rule change in 1920. Would have given Babe Ruth one more HR, among others.

Correct. Rich Hill threw 9 innings of no-hit baseball, but did not get a no-hitter. He wasn't perfect for a full 9 innings due to an error.

Never been a no-no broken by a walk off HR in extra innings.

I like Rich Hill. Damn that was a tough ending for a night of really well pitched ball.

Luis Perdomo was 5/46 this year. He has 0 singles, 1 double and 4 triples

I think he is the only player in MLB history to hit as many as 4 triples without any singles in a season.

Last night was another night for triples milestones.
- 4 triples by D-back first time since 1903 it's been done in a playoff game.
- Kettle Marte became 1st player to triple from both sides of the plate in a playoff game.
- Archie Bradly's first career triple marked the first time a relief pitcher hit a triple in a playoff game.

The 1903 World Series record for triples is dubious, due to the ground rules in play. Pittsburgh sold standing room inside the outfield fence, basically where you'd find the warning track. Fans were held back from play by a restraining rope. Any ball that rolled under that rope was a ground-rule triple. In four games, there were 17 ground-rule triples.

Last night was fun baseball. Like Luke Gofannon in Philip Roth's "The Great American Novel", I love triples.
