Burnett, Yankees win duel with Kazmir, Angels

Ian Kennedy's 20 friends and family members could scarcely stand to watch while the New York reliever's first appearance in over a year went from an inspiration to a budding nightmare.

Thanks to a bases-loaded fly ball, Kennedy and the Yankees could enjoy a much-needed series victory that sent them into a big weekend series with plenty of momentum.

A.J. Burnett struck out 11 in just his second win since July, and New York won a series at Anaheim for the first time since May 2004 with a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday.
