Default how to get pid when I start the process

Hello. I usually start amuled and kill it after a few hours, I do such
thing once a day. Usually I do it like this:

In one console:
$ amuled

In another:

zhangweiwu@mesopotamia:~$ ps ax | grep mule
13595 zhangwei 14080 R N amuled
13598 zhangwei 14080 S N amuled
13600 zhangwei 14080 S N amuled
13603 zhangwei 14080 S N amuled
13612 zhangwei 1352 S grep mule
zhangweiwu@mesopotamia:~$ kill 13595

Note that I should always kill the least-numbered process, I tried
otherwise and always end up in trouble.

Question is, how do I script-lize this? The only difficulty is to get
the pid in script. I could use an one-liner awk script to analyses the
output of ps, but that sounds overkill. Is there a better way?

Best. & Thanks in advance!
