Garrett Mitchell delivered a big hit for his Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday, and then he zinged his wife afterward.

Mitchell hit a walk-off solo home run off Adam Ottavino in the bottom of the ninth to help his Brewers beat the New York Mets 7-6.

The walk-off home run gave the Brewers a three-game sweep over the Mets and capped a big series for Mitchell, who homered twice in Tuesday’s win.

After Wednesday’s game, Mitchell was interviewed by Bally Sports Wisconsin and said he felt loose at the plate because his wife wasn’t at the game.

“When my wife doesn’t show up to the games, usually something good happens. Going into the at-bat, I was like, ‘Man, she’s not here, so might as well do something fun,” Mitchell said of his mentality.

Mitchell’s wife is Haley Cruse, a former Oregon Ducks star softball player.

She called out her husband for not saying that to her face.

“You won’t say it to my face tho (sic),” she tweeted in response.

Hey, whatever gets the job done, Mitchell and the Brewers will take.

Cruse hit .378 with 38 doubles and 14 home runs during her career at Oregon, so Mitchell better watch his words, otherwise, she might not allow him to attend her USSSA Pride games.
