Phillies relief pitcher J.C. Romero was bailed out of yet another late-inning jam on Wednesday after walking 62 consecutive batters before David Herndon came in to record the final out of a scoreless 7th inning, stranding all 62 runners on base.

“He seems to get himself into these jams all the time, but I don’t mind putting him out there again because he always finds a way to let someone else bail him out,” said manager Charlie Manuel. “Plus, I’m not ready to give up on J.C. just yet. You know what I always say: ‘If it ain’t broke beyond any hope of repair, just keep sending it out there.’”

By recording one out before walking the 62 consecutive batters and getting bailed out for the 18th time in 18 appearances this season, Romero was able to lower his ERA from 3.86 to 3.75.

    It’s my goal in life to amuse someone that calls themselves orange rhino. I have failed.

    Orange rhinos aren’t funny.
