Houston Astros took another shut out loss against the New York Yankees, 4-0 (KTRK)

An MVP did some big things inside Minute Maid Park on Wednesday.

Unfortunately for the Astros, that MVP, who hit two home runs off of Dallas Keuchel, plays in pinstripes.

New York Yankees outfielder Giancarlo Stanton accounted for four runs, including a two-run round-tripper in the first inning, as the Houston Astros fall, 4-0.

In a repeat of Tuesday's loss, Astros batters were kept in check. Yankees pitcher Luis Severino pitched a scoreless complete game, allowing just five hits, a walk, and striking out 10.

Houston's starter Dallas Keuchel pitched seven innings and allowed three hits, including two Stanton homers, for the loss.

Stanton, last year's National League MVP with the Miami Marlins, went 3-for-4, including four RBIs and three hits.
