Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Gerrit Cole threw some high heat at the Washington Capitals during Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Second Round against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday.

Cole, wearing a Sidney Crosby jersey, had seats near the glass at the blue line and used his location to heckle the Capitals, so much so he was spoken to by a Consol Energy Center security guard.

Cole was shown on the videoboard during the second period attempting to fire up the crowd.

Pittsburgh won 3-2 in overtime on a goal by Patric Hornqvist to take a 3-1 lead in the best-of-7 series. Game 5 is in Washington on Saturday (7:15 p.m. ET; NBC, CBC, TVA Sports).
