Evil Geniuses extended their win streak to four and 100 Thieves moved into a tie with Team Liquid for second place in the final day of Week 4 action of the LCS 2022 Summer Split event on Sunday.

First-place EG took down Liquid, while Thieves rebounded from a loss on Saturday to defeat Counter Logic Gaming.
