LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers will try for a series sweep and a winning homestand when they take on the Mets on Sunday afternoon.  The Dodgers have swept seven series in 2014, two at home. The Dodgers swept their 2013 home series against Mets and have won six straight at home against the Mets.

Kevin Correia will be making his third start for the Dodgers.  Correia last faced the Mets when he pitched for the Pirates on September 27, 2012.  Two of the batters Correia could face today will think back to those times, David Wright is 13 for 17 (.765) against Correia with three doubles and three home runs and Daniel Murphy is 6 for 15 (.400).

Mets starter Bartolo Colon last faced the Dodgers in 2006.  Carl Crawford has had the most experience (37 plate appearances) with a .167/.189/.222 line.  Adrian Gonzalez is 6 for 18 with 2 home runs.

The Dodgers surpassed the three million home attendance mark on Saturday night for the 18th time in the last 19 seasons.
