Murcer's 'hot bat' paces Yankees 2-1 ByKENRAPPOPORT AP Sports Writer Just call Bobby Murcer one of the "Sunshine Boys." "I like warm weather," the New York Yankee outfielder explains. "I just can't play in cold weather." The summer has brought out the best in Mureer—and he continued to match the climate with a hot bat Wednesday night that lead a 2-1 victory over the Kansas City Royals.

The 17-year-old high school junior from Roswell, N.M., beat Curtis Cup Team member Carol Semple 2 and 1 in Thursday's quarter-finals of the 74th Women's Western Golf Association Amateur Championship at the Country Club of Indianapolis. The 5-foot-4,140-pound belter elbowed her way into the spotlight at the prestigious tournament by winning the 16th and 17th holes on the rolling course to shut out the far more experienced Miss Semple. Her victory vaulted the defending WWGA Junior champion into today's semifinal round against another Curtis Cup star, Beth Barry. Miss Barry, who won this tournament in 1971, hung on to beat Martha Jones 2-up by winning the 18th hole with a par. The two Alabama girls—Miss Barry from Dauphin Island and Miss Jones from Decatur—appeared mismatched for 13 holes as the former took a three-up lead. But Miss Jones came back to win No. 14 and No. 17, setting up the tense finish. The other semifinal matched tournament medalist Lancy Smith of Snyder, Pa., against 1973 Western Amateur runner- up Brenda Goldsmith of San Antonio, Tex. Miss Smith shot a two-under- par 34 on the front nine to grab a three-up lead over Teresa Weinshiiboum of Ponca City, Okla,, then held on for a 2-and-l victory. Miss Goldsmith romped over Pam Clark of Arlington, Va., 6 and 5. Miss Semple, winner of the U.S. Golf Association and British Amateur titles last year, said, "I felt like I was short of a lot of greens on the back nine. I was overclubbing, I guess. I just couldn't make myself hit the putts." Miss Lopez, looking at the type of competition she's facing, said, "In the Western in 1972,1 played three Curtis Cuppers and one Walker Cupper. 1 felt then that I'd get experience by watching and playing against people like that "Now, I feel I have the experience, too. I like to play against that type of player because it's a challenge," she said. Major League Leaders NATIONALLEAOUE BATTING (190 at bats) — Gsrr, All. .364; Gross. Hlri .33*. RUNS—Wynn.
