HAMILTON, Ont. -- Zach Collaros and the Hamilton Tiger-Cats created a three-way tie for first place in the CFLs East Division on Sunday. Collaros threw two touchdown passes and the Tiger-Cats defence shut down the leagues best running game en route to a 28-3 victory over the Saskatchewan Roughriders. "It was a complete football game today in all three phases, which is what you want to see," said Hamilton head coach Kent Austin. "Especially after a tough loss on the road (38-31 to Montreal in which the Ticats gave up a huge lead). Just tells you about the character in that locker-room and the quality of our guys. "Weve gotten better as a football team. We didnt have the lulls in this game that weve had before. . . And guys are growing up a little bit." Hamilton (3-7) moves into a three-way tie for first in the East with Toronto and Montreal, who both lost this weekend. And Saskatchewan, missing injured quarterback Darian Durant, saw its league-best winning streak end at seven games. With a record of 8-3, the Riders fall into a share of second spot with Edmonton in the mighty CFL West Division. Collaros threw touchdown passes to Luke Tasker and Terrell Sinkfield scored on a 58-yard punt return for the victory in front of a sell-out crowd of 18,135 fans at Tim Hortons Field. "It feels good to win," said Collaros, who completed 29 of 36 pass attempts for 287 yards, two TDs and one interception. "I thought the offensive line did a great job all day. Thats a heckuva D-line over there." Ticat kicker Justin Medlock hit field goals from 50 and 51 yards and added a 57-yard punt single, but hit the left upright in the third quarter from 43 yards out. Saskatchewan kicker Chris Milo hit a 10-yarder on his lone attempt. Hamilton receiver Andy Fantuz made 11 catches for 108 yards. The Ticats won the battle for time of possession, controlling the ball for 32:13 to Saskatchewans 27:47. They had seen that as a key battle in keeping their own defence rested. And that seemed to pay off. The Ticat defence held the Saskatchewan rushing attack to 105 yards -- an attack that averaged 150.7 yards per game coming in. Meanwhile, the Roughrider defensive line, that had sacked Collaros 10 times in their first meeting to start the season (a Saskatchewan 31-10 win), only got to him three times. Hamiltons defence sacked Tino Sunseri five times. Ticats defensive co-ordinator Orlondo Steinauer said you can plan a defensive strategy, but its up to the players to execute it. "What I saw (today) were guys that didnt want to lose," he said. "To be honest with you, (I saw) a different level of intensity in their preparation starting early in the week and it just followed all the way through four quarters today." Sunseri, starting in place of Durant, who is expected to be out for the season after tearing a tendon in his right elbow, completed nine of 21 pass attempts for 88 yards, one interception and no touchdowns. Saskatchewan coach Corey Chamblin said the game was a challenge. With the best running game in the league right now and a back-up quarterback running the offence, everybody expected his team to run the ball. The Riders rush about 47 per cent of the time -- more than any other team in the league. Heading into the game, they led the league with 1,507 net yards on the ground. But when youre riding a seven-game win streak, you know it has to eventually end. "When youve been winning so long, eventually you have to come down," Chamblin said. "Its part of football. There have been lots of games we won but we could have lost. This one, there was a chance when we were down by just 10 points (at the end of the half), but we lost. Its not stunning. Its a part of football." Hamilton mismanaged the clock at the end of the first half, squandering a scoring opportunity while in Saskatchewan territory, and took a 13-3 lead into halftime. Medlock couldnt add to the lead early in the third when his 43-yard field-goal attempt hit the left upright. But Sinkfield made it 20-3 for the Ticats soon after when he returned a 38-yard punt by Milo 58 yards for the touchdown. Roughrider defensive lineman Derek Walker shut down another promising Hamilton drive late in the third with an interception at the Saskatchewan 12, grabbing a deflected pass from Collaros. But with less than four minutes left to play, Hamilton finished an 85-yard drive with a 14-yard TD pass from Collaros to Tasker. Medlocks 57-yard punt single made it 28-3. Hamilton was up 6-0 at the end of the first quarter on two Medlock field goals, from 50 and 51 yards with the wind. The Ticats followed the game plan controlling the ball for most of the quarter, keeping it away from the Roughriders powerful running backs. A short 20-yard punt by Milo near the end of the quarter gave the Ticats the ball at the Saskatchewan 44. Four plays later, Collaros hit Tasker for a 14-yard catch-and-run TD to open second-quarter scoring and take a 13-0 lead. Saskatchewan finally got on the board when Milo hit a 10-yard field goal with three minutes left in the half. The Roughriders took 11 plays and 4:54 to move 55 yards, aided by three Hamilton penalties, but the Ticat defence came up big with first-and-goal at the three-yard-line, stuffing Jerome Messam at the line of scrimmage and then forcing an incomplete throw in the end zone. The half ended 13-3 as Hamilton missed an opportunity to get at least a field goal. After driving 62 yards to the Saskatchewan 21, the Ticats ran a play from scrimmage with about seven seconds remaining but couldnt get the ball out of bounds fast enough and time expired before any attempt at a scoring play.

Perez threw eight scoreless innings with the benefit of four double-play grounders, plus two runners thrown out trying to steal a base, and the Rangers got a series-clinching 1-0 victory over the Houston Astros on Sunday. "That happens when you throw all your pitches down and you get a lot of groundballs," Perez said. "If you can throw strikes with runners on base, you can get a win, you can get the outs. You have to make a pitch and trust your stuff." The lone run came on a sacrifice fly in the sixth by Donnie Murphy, who was in the game only because shortstop Elvis Andrus got ejected at the end of the third after taking a called third strike. Andrus tossed his bat away from the plate and then said something to home plate umpire Alan Porter. "As soon as I saw (the ump) point at him, I automatically threw off the hoodie and got loose, so I didnt really have much time to think about it," said Murphy, who joined the Rangers at the end of spring training. "Its always nice when you dont start the game just to come in and contribute like that." Perez (2-0) struck out two while scattering five hits and three walks. Catcher Robinson Chirinos threw out would-be base stealers in the third and fifth innings. Alexi Ogando worked a perfect ninth to convert his first save chance. Murphys deep flyball to the left-centre gap in the sixth sent home Josh Wilson against Brett Oberholtzer (0-3), who had a career-high seven strikeouts with no walks. "Oberholtzer was outstanding. Our starters did a tremendous job this whole series. The starts put us in a position to win every game," Astros manager Bo Porter said. "Weve got to get (the offence) going. If you dont score, youve got zero chance of winning." The Astros, who have scored only four runs in Oberholtzers three starts, scoreed in only two of their 31 innings against Texas.ddddddddddddThey had a five-run fourth inning Saturday before the game-winning run in the 10th. It was only the 10th 1-0 victory for the Rangers in their 1,601 regular-season home games since moving into their current ballpark 20 years ago. It was their second in three games against the Astros, the first time Texas has ever had multiple 1-0 wins in the same series -- home or away. Texas won the series opener 1-0 in 12 innings Friday night after Yu Darvish was perfect thru five innings. The Astros won 6-5 in 10 innings Saturday to snap their 12-game losing streak to their instate AL West rival. Houston has scored only four runs in the three games started this season by Oberholtzer, who struck out a career-high seven in seven innings against Texas. Texas has won its last 15 series against the Astros since dropping two of three at Houston in June 2008. Andrus struck out in both of his at-bats, ending his season-opening 11-game hitting streak that was second-longest in team history. Al Oliver had hits in the Rangers first 13 games to start the 1979 season. Prince Fielder finished 0 for 3, dropping his average to .149 through his first 12 games with the Rangers. The Astros used a drastic shift against him this weekend that took away several hits, including a sharp liner caught by second baseman Jose Altuve in shallow right to end the sixth Sunday. Altuve fielded a ground near that spot in the fourth. NOTES: It took only 44 seconds in the first inning for replay to overturn first base umpire Joe Wests call that Shin-Soo Choo was safe at first base. West had ruled that Altuves throw had pulled Jesus Guzman off first base. Porter came out, and replay showed that Guzman had stayed on the base and Choo was out. ... Murphy played second base, and Wilson moved from second base to shortstop. ... Rain was falling when the game started, but the sun was out when it ended 2 hours, 15 minutes later. ' ' '
