Jordan Zimmermann can't feel the cold, might be King in the North

Things got a bit chilly in the nation's capital on Saturday as the Nationals hosted the Giants for Game 2 of the NLDS. While the temperature at first pitch was reported to be a comfortable 63 degrees, it soon thereafter dipped into the low 50s.

The Nats broke out the tube heater in the home dugout and many of the players were rocking longsleeves to keep warm in the brisk October air.

Jordan Zimmermann was too hot to even notice. The Nats' hurler capped off the regular season with a no-hitter in Game 162 and picked up right where he left off, allowing three knocks in the first three frames then retiring 20 straight:

Unfortunately, the Giants were able to tie the score after Zimmermann exited the game, eventually winning it in 18. But his short sleeves and the ice running through his veins on a big stage prompted the Fox Sports 1 broadcast team to point out that he's from Auburndale, Wisconsin where it's already dipping into the low 30s at night.

Jordan Zimmermann is ... THE KING IN THE NORTH!
