Sontensei was banned? Oh dios mio.

Id say the banning but that happened halfway through this streak. I'll blame it on the SI cover. 1-4 and outscored 27-14 since then

I don't think Sontensei being banned had anything to do with the losing streak, but it will certainly have postseason repercussions.
