TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers finally have their first win of the season, a 22-19 decision over the visiting Miami Dolphins. The Bucs coughed up a 15-0 lead before Bobby Rainey scored on a one-yard run with 10:19 left. Ryan Tannehill hit Richard Matthews for a pair of TDs while Miami was scoring 19 straight points, but the Dolphins managed just two yards on 14 carries in falling to 4-5.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross says he's appalled by Jonathan Martin's allegations of daily harassment by teammates and plans to meet with the player on Wednesday. Martin continues to stay away from the team as the NFL investigates his allegations against teammates, including suspended player Richie Incognito. A special investigator for the league will determine whether Incognito harassed Martin, and whether the Dolphins mishandled the matter.

NEW YORK (AP) — Outfielder Wil Myers is the third Tampa Bay Rays player in six years to be selected American League Rookie of the Year, joining pitcher Jeremy Hellickson and third baseman Evan Longoria. Myers picked up 23 of 30 first-place votes and 131 total points after hitting .293 with 13 home runs and 53 RBIs in 88 games following his recall on June 18. Detroit shortstop Julio Iglesias was second in the balloting, followed by Rays pitcher Chris Archer.

NEW YORK (AP) — The National League Rookie of the Year award goes to Miami pitcher Jose Fernandez, who was 12-6 with a 2.19 ERA and 187 strikeouts in 172 2/3 innings. Fernandez is the fourth Marlin since 2003 to capture the award, joining Dontrelle Willis, Hanley Ramirez and Chris Coghlan. Fernandez picked up 26 of 30 first-place votes to easily beat runner-up Yasiel Puig (YAH'-see-ul pweeg) of the Dodgers and St. Louis pitcher Shelby Miller.

BOSTON (AP) — Tampa Bay Lightning forward Steven Stamkos is expected to undergo surgery on Tuesday after breaking his right tibia during the second period of Monday's 3-0 loss to the Bruins in Boston. Stamkos got tied up with Boston defenseman Dougie Hamilton and crashed into the right post before he was taken off the ice on a stretcher. Stamkos currently is the NHL co-leader in goals with 14 and points with 23.
