Cowboys, Zeke Reach Deal, Lorenzen Becomes The Reds’ Babe, Nadal Moves Into Semifinals

Grace Higgins | September 5th, 2019

With the NFL season one day from starting, the Dallas Cowboys and running back Ezekiel Elliott finally agreed to a deal, with Zeke proclaiming that he believes he is the best after he got $90 million over six years, including $50 million guaranteed. That makes him the highest-paid running back in the league, surpassing previous leader Todd Gurley. Directly after signing the deal, Elliott, who had been holding out and had not participated in any team activities until a deal was struck, he went right into practice. The Cowboys face off with the New York Giants this Sunday, and it’ll be interesting to see if he plays- and how much he might feature if he does.

The Cincinnati Reds have not had the greatest season in terms of results. They were, at one point, in the playoff chase, but they have since fallen off the wagon and are just playing for pride at this stage. But they have seen rookie Aristides Aquino make history throughout his short tenure, and now Michael Lorenzen has chosen to do the same. In fact, Lorenzen did something that no one has done in almost 100 years to match the mighty Babe Ruth. Lorenzen started on the mound for the home team against the Philadelphia Phillies, still chasing a Wild Card spot and got a victory. He would hit a home run for the Reds in the appearance, and then magically enough, he would end up playing in center field to finish out the game. No man had done all three since Babe Ruth back in 1921, a remarkable achievement. The 8-5 win for the Reds means a whole lot more to the Phillies, who fell three games off the pace of the Chicago Cubs in the Wild Card race. It also snapped a three-game winning run for the NL East team.

Rafa Nadal was simply not going to be denied on Wednesday night at the US Open. He didn’t make it easy on himself against Diego Schwartzman, but in the end he did get the job done with a 6-4, 7-5, 6-2 win in the quarterfinals. The match ended up, however, taking over two hours (in the first two sets alone) due to Nadal’s inability to close it out. The Spaniard had been up 4-0 in the first set before his opponent came back to make it tougher than it needed to be and then had been up as much as 5-1 in the second before needing additional time to seal it up. Regardless, the Spaniard will now face a semi-final clash with 23 year-old Italian Matteo Berrettini. The other semi is super intriguing with villain Daniil Medvedev taking on non-seeded Grigor Dimitrov, the man who defeated an ailing Roger Federer in the quarters.
