The Cincinnati Reds were leading the National League Central division by a half game before a strike ended the 1994 Major League Baseball season.

Offseason[edit]

Regular season[edit]

By Friday, August 12, the Reds had compiled a 66-48 record through 114 games (although they had actually played 115 games, since their April 6 game against the St. Louis Cardinals at Riverfront Stadium ended after the top of the 6th inning due to poor weather[6]). They were leading the NL Central Division by just half a game over the Houston Astros. Prior to the Strike, they had scored 609 runs (5.30 per game) and had allowed 490 runs (4.26 per game).[7]
