Jordan Fox’s four runs batted in did more than give UC Irvine a 5-3 victory over Sacramento State on Saturday. It allowed Coach Mike Gillespie to reach a milestone.

The victory was the 900th in Gillespie’s 23 years as a Division I coach. He has a record of 900-526-2.

Gillespie went 736-471-2 in 20 seasons at USC, where he produced 28 major league players, including Mark Prior, Barry Zito, Aaron Boone and Bret Boone. He has been the Anteaters’ coach the last three seasons, going 164-55.
