Vertical type on a path more than one character per line?

I have been tasked with replicating some graphics that will have type reading along a circular path, but with the type's baseline at 90 deg to the path. I'd like to have the numbers follow the blue line in the orientation seen here:

I tried applying tate-chu-yoko to the numbers in the character palette, which does change its orientation, but only allows one number to be shown if I have returns between numbers:

If I put spaces between numbers, it just has them all one one line:

Does anyone have an idea how to do this correctly? Thanks!

That is an ingenious answer I did not think of! Thank you! I ended up doing a rotate/copy of a single line, then changing each of 128 separate pieces of copy. Yuck. It worked, though. If the client comes in with a lot of edits, I will definitely use your method. Thank you!!!
