The New York Yankees lost another extra-inning game, so fans in the Big Apple are absolutely done with the MLB's rule change.

Two of the Yankees' three losses so far in 2021 have come in extra innings.

Fans at Yankees Stadium are blaming the MLB's extra-inning rule placing a runner on second base to start each inning after the ninth.

On Wednesday, as New York and Baltimore played on to settle their 2-2 tie, fans rallied together for a chant against the new procedure.

Fans on Twitter shared their displeasure over the rule as well

Fantasy Baseball 2021: Closer job security rankings, tiers heading into Opening Day

  Fantasy Baseball 2021: Closer job security rankings, tiers heading into Opening Day This is how confident you should feel in the relievers you drafted prior to Opening DayAnd, as we head into the season, you can see why. I broke down every team's save situation into tiers based on one simple standard: Do we know who their closer is? By my count, there are 13 teams whose closer is definitely known, and another seven or so with a pretty obvious presumptive closer -- not even close to enough for every team in a 12-team league to have two. And, those 19 include plenty of guys with potentially tenuous holds on their jobs anyway -- I would say there are only around 12 teams where I think the closer is both secure in their job and actually a good pitcher.

A Yankees stats account pointed out the team's general futility in extra innings since the rule was introduced in 2020.

The Yankees have had a tough time with the MLB extra-innings change

Why is New York so susceptible to extra-inning losses? It could be they just haven't taken their chances when it matters. Helping out the other team with errors doesn't help.

NFL eyeing onsite offseason workouts; NFLPA prefers virtual setup

  NFL eyeing onsite offseason workouts; NFLPA prefers virtual setup The NFL indicated meetings will likely remain virtual for the foreseeable future, but this year’s offseason workouts are not expected to be fully virtual like they were in 2020. However, the union has offered pushback to an onsite offseason returning this year.As of now, teams can schedule onsite OTAs to begin April 19. This is, however, contingent on no offseason plan being agreed to between the NFL and NFLPA. The union has offered pushback to an onsite offseason returning this year, with Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reporting little progress has been made between the sides on this front.

The Orioles took the lead in the 10th when Gleyber Torres missed a throw and Anthony Santander made it home from his spot on second. The run was critical as NY scored as well in the bottom of the 10th.

The be fair to the Yankees, they aren't set up to benefit from the rule as a power-hitting team. Teams who play small ball have a built-in advantage when it comes to driving in the runner on second.

That's what has fans so riled up, apart from losing, which is always worth a rant or two.

New York missed out on the chance to sweep the Orioles because of the late loss. They fell to 3-3 on the season. Now they have to head on the road for series with the Rays and Blue Jays.

Brewers overpower Cardinals, 9-5 .
Brewers bats come alive in victory.In the first inning, the Brewers drove in a run and left the bases stranded on a series of hard-hit balls. In the two spot, Christian Yelich beat the shift, reaching on a hard-hit breaking ball that got too much of the plate. Yelich beat a Yadier Molina throw to steal second before Travis Shaw smoked a liner to short that glanced off of Paul DeJong’s glove to score Yelich from second and give Milwaukee a 1-0 lead.
