He just went to his temple before the Rosario hit.So Valdez doesn’t touch his temple in his first ALCS appearance and gets crushed. He touches it all the time in his second ALCS appearance and throws a gem. He doesn’t touch it tonight and is getting smacked around.
(1) Why did he touch his temple all the time in game 5?
(2) Why isn’t he doing it now?
Other than that I got nothing.
