LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Orestes Kindelan of Cuba drove in four runs and Angel Morales of Puerto Rico had five hits as the West capitalized on five errors and beat the East 8-7 Saturday night in the second World All-Star game.

Morales had three doubles, two singles and an RBI at Dodger Stadium. Kindelan added a triple and a three-run homer that gave the West an 8-1 lead in the fourth.

Milton Croes of Aruba was the winner. He followed starter Chris Smeeton of Canada and allowed an infield hit in two innings and struck out four.

Kindelan’s home run capped a four-run fourth against reliever Bart Volkerijk of the Netherlands.

The West, which had 13 hits, scored three unearned runs, taking a 4-1 lead after two second-inning errors by shortstop Matthew Sheldon-Collins of Australia and another error by left fielder Shin-ichi Gotoh of Japan. Morales and Dan Melendez of Pepperdine hit RBI singles off losing pitcher Hiroshi Nishioka of Japan.

The East got three runs in the sixth on RBI singles by Gotoh and Sheldon- Collins and a double-play grounder by Hideaki Okubo. Andrew Scott of Australia hit a two-run single in the eighth and Tony Adamson of Australia singled in another run.

The East scored its final run in the ninth on a throwing error by pitcher Chris Roberts of Florida State.

The game, dedicated to the memory of Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson, featured 44 players representing 27 countries. Sadaharu Oh, Japan’s career home run leader, was honorary coach for the East for the second straight year. Brooklyn Dodgers teammates Roy Campanella and Don Newcombe were honorary coaches for the West.
