Season summary

The Red Stockings were coming off a second place finish in the 1885 season, which was their highest placing since winning the 1882 American Association pennant. Cincinnati was relatively quiet during the off-season; however, Tony Mullane, who had been suspended for the 1885 season for defying his contract, returned and made his Cincinnati debut in 1886.

The Red Stockings started the season off slowly, winning only four of their first twelve games to sit in seventh place. Cincinnati would continue to play mediocre baseball, and would be in eighth place with a 24-35 record, 12.5 games out of first place. The Red Stockings then went on a seven-game winning streak to climb into sixth place to bring their record to 31-35, however, they remained 12.5 games out of first. The team eventually broke over the .500 level, reaching a season best three games over .500 with a 50-47 record. However, Cincinnati faded down the stretch, and finished with a losing record for the first time in team history, as they were 65-73, which was good for fifth place 27.5 games behind the St. Louis Browns.
