A lo largo de los partidos

Hi there! I have a doubt that I'd like to discuss. My doubt is about the word over. Can I say "He improved over the last 4 games" in the sense of " El mejoró a lo largo de las últimas cuatro partidas" I've seen many times "over the years" so I suppose that "over the last 4 games" may be correct as well. Thanks beforehand.

    I hope you will not mind a few minor corrections/suggestions that will make your English flow a bit smoother...

    NOTE: 'Over the matches' doesn't sound quite right to me, but I can't say why... I would say: Throughout the match/series/tournament

    "Over the last four games" is fine, but my preference would be "over the course of the last four games". Just sounds more natural to me, but I wouldn't be surprised if others disagree.
