Whitworth told ESPN that the tweet originated from his wife, who was trying to send a private message to a teammate for him. Whitworth said his wife is upset over the ordeal but downplayed the message as more of a joke.
Whitworth is entering the final year of his contract.
Stubbs was called upon to pinch-hit in the eighth inning and delivered his second home run of the season; unfortunately, it only reduced his team's deficit to seven runs. The outfielder went 0 for 20 in April but is now 2 for 6 with two home runs in May.
Hundley's hitting streak is now up to 10 games and includes five multihit performances. He picked up his first RBI with a fifth-inning sacrifice fly and added another on a solo home run in the seventh. In the eighth, he knocked a double deep to center field to tally his third RBI for the game, which is a season high for the catcher.
Hundley has hit .343/.390/.529 with two home runs and eight RBI in 70 at-bats.
Votto was 0 for 2 with one strikeout in the game before being ejected. It is his fifth career ejection.
