Regular season

After finishing dead last in the National League in the 1876 season, the Reds attempted to improve their club by signing Lip Pike, who spent the previous season with the St. Louis Brown Stockings. Pike was also named the manager of the team. Some other off-season additions included Bob Addy, who spent the previous season with the Chicago White Stockings, Jack Manning of the Boston Red Caps, and a couple of new pitchers with Candy Cummings, who had a 16–8 record with a 1.67 ERA with the Hartford Dark Blues joining the team, as well as Bobby Mathews, who had a 21–34 record with New York Mutuals in 1876.

Charley Jones had another solid season for the Reds, hitting .310 with two homers and a team high 36 RBI. Manning had solid year, hitting .317, as he had a team high 80 hits while tying Jones with a team high 36 RBI. Pike hit .298 with a teah high four home runs, and added 23 RBI. On the mound, rookie Bobby Mitchell came up late in the season, and was very impressive, leading Cincinnati with six victories with a team best 3.51 in twelve games.

Season summary

The Reds got off to another terrible start, as they had a 3–11 start to the season, and Pike stepped down as the manager. Bob Addy took over as player manager; however, he too saw very few wins as Cincinnati went 5–19 during his managerial stint. Jack Manning then finished the year as player-manager, going 7–12, as the Reds had a 15–42 record, once again finishing in the National League cellar, 25.5 games behind the first place Boston Red Caps.
