Walk off Triple's. How often?

The A's Rajai Davis hit a walk-off triple in the bottom of the ninth tonight against Texas to win the game 3-2. There were runners at First and Second. Once the second runner scores, the game is over and there is no reason for the official scorer to award third base. I suppose with Davis's speed he could have been to third when the second run scored, but the replays only show he was near it.

 

I don't know if I have ever seen that ruled anything but a double before on a game I was watching but I'm sure it happens a small amount of times. It made me wonder just how rare that is. Does a walk-off double happen 100x more often than a walk-off triple? Does anyone have a  stat site that would keep track of what type of  walk-off hits happened? For that manner game ending walks, error's, balks etc. I would think one of the rarest of all outcomes might be stealing home.
