TIGER-CATS 38 BLUE BOMBERS 8
Hamilton (4-2) earned its ninth straight victory at the stadium before yet another enthusiastic sellout gathering of 24,068. The Ticats captured their fourth win in five games overall to move into a first-place tie in the East Division with Toronto (4-2) and Ottawa (4-2).
It's Hamilton's longest home win streak since an 11-game run in 2001-'02.
Winnipeg (3-4) suffered its second loss to Hamilton, dropping a 52-26 home decision July 2. The Bombers remain tied for third with B.C. in the West Division.
Winnipeg also lost starter Drew Willy (knee) late in the third after taking a hit from Hamilton linebacker Erik Harris. Willy remained on the field clutching his right knee before walking off the field albeit with his arms around two medical personnel.
Willy was 16-of-27 passing for 171 yards with a touchdown and interception before being replaced by Brian Brohm.
