Day 12 results and day 13 pairings

Recommended Posts

Toyonoshima is still trying to become the second rikishi ever to win consecutive yusho in juryo and makuuchi as he downed co-leader ozeki Baruto with a shitatehineri. Ryogoku managed that feat in 1914, and the yusho just didn't have the same ring to it like it does today - for example the last bout of Ryogoku (the yusho decider so to speak) was against the lowest ranked maegashira, not against his pursuer, yokozuna Tachiyama against whom he most likely would have lost.

Today's yokozuna Hakuho and the eternal ozeki Kaio also won their bouts, sending Tochiozan and Hakuba to make-koshi. They meet tomorrow to take down another rikishi from the leaders while Toyonoshima is up against Kakuryu and Baruto must beat fellow ozeki Kotooshu to stay within one win. Goeido is the sole rikishi at 9-3 while Tamawashi beat Shotenro for the single makuuchi kachi-koshi of the day. Kotoshogiku beat Kisenosato to get close to a sanyaku return as Homasho and Aminishiki hurt their chances with losses.

Juryo had even two bouts between leaders with Wakakoyu and Toyohibiki emerging victorious over Sakaizawa and Kaisei. Tochinowaka stayed in the leader group but veteran Tamanoshima lost to Kyokunankai. Two other veterans Tosanoumi and Jumonji are a double digit losses already with Jumonji sure to get demoted along with Ryuho while Tosanoumi can still stay in juryo if he wins out which seems unlikely by now. Tsurugidake and Chiyohakuho also are in danger ans get an encounter with the two very motivated lead makushita at 3-3 tomorrow. Masunoyama lost to Daido to get the make-koshi and has only room for one more loss to stay in juryo.

I yelled loudly and woke up my girlfriend when I saw Toyonoshima beating Baruto. I've been secretly hoping that the emperor's cup would go to Kaio or Toyonoshima this basho and my hopes just might become reality!

I was watching too, can't believe it! I know people don't agree but I much prefer a basho where the makuuchi yusho is a race rather than a parade. This is great stuff, no matter how odd some of it may be... I believe (Sign of approval...)
