NEW YORK — Anthony Volpe savored the first Yankee Stadium curtain call of his brief big league career and DJ LeMahieu came off the bench to deliver a ninth-inning RBI single as the Yankees walked off the Blue Jays, 3-2, on Saturday afternoon in the Bronx.

After the Yankees were held to two hits over seven frames by Toronto’s Alek Manoah, a pair of Baby Bombers helped break the slumber in the eighth. Oswald Peraza stroked a two-out single and Volpe belted a 364-foot drive over the right-field wall facing reliever Yimi García.

The 21-year-old Volpe acknowledged the chanting cheers from the crowd of 43,223, rising to the top step of the dugout and clapping repeatedly.

Danny Jansen re-tied the game with a pinch-hit, two-run homer in the ninth off Wandy Peralta before the Yanks rallied in the home half. Rizzo belted a double to the left-field wall, Gleyber Torres reached on an infield single and Willie Calhoun walked, setting up LeMahieu’s ground single to left field.

The heavyweight pitchers’ duel between Gerrit Cole and Manoah lived up to expectations, with each ace pitching scoreless outings. Cole lowered his ERA to 0.79 by scattering four hits over 5 2/3 frames, permitting two walks while striking out four.
