Maybe it's selective memory but I can't recall any 4 run plays that weren't GS recently
Of course it wasn't, because of the error. I'm not familiar with the specifics of the play you're talking about, but if a runner advances to home on a throwing error after hitting the ball and reaching up to third base, it's a triple with advancement to home on an error. In essence, the batter doesn't get full credit for it because he didn't deserve it.
